BERKS COUNTY, Pennsylvania: A year ago, Dennis Baylor began his campaign to run for the Pennsylvania State Senate as an independent. After losing to incumbent James Rhoades, Baylor decided that he should run again in a March special election under the No-Party Party of Pennsylvania. He had gathered enough signatures to appear on the November ballot, but was told that the had to start the signature gathering process all over again. The independent then filed a lawsuit, stating that state election code was “unconstitutionally burdensome toward minor party candidates seeking ballot access”.
