Nader Files Brief in 9th Circuit in 2004 Ballot Access Case

October 13th, 2009

On October 13, Ralph Nader filed his brief in the 9th circuit in Nader v Cronin, 08-16444. The case challenges the number of signatures needed for an independent presidential candidate in Hawaii, which is approximately 6 times as many signatures as are needed for an entire new party (which is entitled to its own primary, and the ability to run a nominee for every partisan office in the state).

This is the only constitutional ballot access case still pending in any court that was filed in 2004. It was delayed for years because the U.S. District Court was waiting for the State Supreme Court to rule on some of the issues in the case.
