Nebraska Libertarians join lawsuit over signature requirements
By Kyle Maichle
The Libertarians join the American Civil Liberties Union who first filed suit against the state in December of 2009. The suit involves two laws the Nebraska Legislature passed in 2007 and 2008. Officials for the Nebraska Libertarians feel that laws to increase the number of required signatures for independent candidates and requiring petition circulators for ballot initiatives to be Nebraska residents have hindered their ability to participate in the political process.
