Rocky De La Fuente and Jill Stein File Oklahoma Ballot Access Case

On August 10, Rocky De La Fuente and Jill Stein filed a lawsuit against the Oklahoma requirement that independent presidential candidates, and the presidential nominees of unqualified parties, file a petition with 40,047 valid signatures by July 15. The Complaint points out that the state irrationally requires more signatures for just a single candidate than for an entire new party. New parties this year needed 24,745 signatures. The Complaint also charges that the deadline is unconstitutionally early. De La Fuente v Ziriaz, w.d., cv-16-914.
