Tennessee

By Tyler Millhouse

NASHVILLE, Tennessee: On June 8, Tennessee filed an opening brief in its appeal of a recent ruling which overturned several of the state's ballot access laws for minor parties. Although the state has already revised some of it election laws in response to the February 3 ruling, the state continues to challenge two aspects of the decision. The first is the court's requirement that minor party candidates have an equal chance at being placed first on the ballot. The second is court's order requiring the state to include the Green and Constitution parties on the ballot.[1][2][3]
