New Hampshire hoping to improve ballot access through house bill

Wooden ballot box.jpg

CONCORD, New Hampshire: A new House Bill has been introduced by New Hampshire Representative Joel Winters. The new bill, known as HB 1264, was introduced to improve ballot access by allowing previously unqualified political parties to get on the ballot for the United States Senate, or for governor.[1]

According to the bill, a two-tier system would be implemented that would allow a party that polled 3% for the United States Senate or governor in the last election or that has at least 3,000 registered members. The parties would then nominate their candidate by convention. Currently, to be a qualified political party, that party has to have polled 4% of voters in the previous election for senate or governor.
