federal ballot access reform bill (1985)

This bill was originally introduced in 1985.  I hope that it or a similar bill gets adopted.   Below is the full text of the bill.  A somewhat similar bill was later introduced in 2003/2004.

 

The basic premise of the 1985 bill is that Independent/minor party candidates -- who meet the Constitutional requirements - should generally -- in federal elections -- be given ballot access by submitting a petition signed by 1,000 voters.  I also transformed this bill into a proposed Constitutional Amendment.
