Michigan Governor Rick Snyder says he will call a special election to fill the vacant 13th district U.S. House seat. See this story. Michigan has more ballot-qualified parties than any other state in the midwest, and all of them will be able to nominate a candidate with no petition. Besides the two major parties, the Libertarian, Green, Constitution, Natural Law, and Working Class Parties are on the ballot. The name of the Constitution Party in Michigan is the U.S. Taxpayers Party. The state won’t let the party change its name. U.S. Taxpayers Party nationally changed its name to Constitution Party in 1999, and all the other states where it was on the ballot let it change its name, if the state party wanted to change its name.
