Ballot Access Reform

|

New York's antiquated election laws are highly technical and needlessly burdensome, making it entirely too easy for incumbents to throw challengers off of the ballot. Speaker Silver has not received a primary challenge in 22 years in part because of his ability to knock challengers off of the ballot. Luke Henry successfully navigated New York's highly technical ballot access laws, but it should be easier for candidates to secure a place on the ballot. Competitive elections benefit everyone. Elections should be a battle of ideas not an exercise in clearing onerous legal obstacles.
