Ballot Access Hearing

On Monday, May 16, in Philadelphia Federal Court a hearing will be held on an Injunction filed by Attorney Oliver B. Hall, counsel for the plaintiffs, asking the federal courts to intervene and instruct the Commonwealth to comply with the decision. The injunction seeks to have Secretary Pedro Cortes, under his administrative authority, place the Green, Libertarian and Constitutional Party candidates on the ballot. A second option would be for the signature requirement for the parties to be reduced to the same number that Republicans and Democrats need, which is 2,000. Cortes is insisting that the minor parties be required to achieve a minimum signature level of 21,775.
