Pandemic further limits electoral process access by some candidates; Alliance Party urges e-signatures to be allowed for candidate nomination
There are already far too many impediments to ballot access by candidates who are not members of the two ruling parties. Allowing the pandemic to further constrain and control the electoral process flies in the face of every sacred principle of Democracy so cherished by our founding fathers.
The Alliance Party, the national organizational arm of a political reform movement, with affiliates and candidates in two dozen states, is calling on the states to enact legislation allowing voters to provide electronic signatures on petitions to place candidates on ballots because in-person contact to gather signatures is impossible during the pandemic.
“There are already far too many impediments to ballot access by candidates who are not members of the two ruling parties,” said Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente, the Alliance Party’s nominee for president of the United States. “Allowing the pandemic to further constrain and control the electoral process flies in the face of every sacred principle of Democracy so cherished by our founding fathers.”
De La Fuente has filed lawsuits in several states to bring about changes needed to expand ballot access for him and other candidates who are not part of the ruling two-party system.
According to Ballotpedia: Electronic signature software may be used to gather electronic petition signatures. Using such software, individuals may electronically sign an initiative or referendum petition online from home or another location, or they may be required to electronically sign on a petition circulator’s mobile device. For candidate nominating petitions, government websites may allow electronic signing through the submission of an ID number, such as a driver’s license number.
