Amicus Brief submitted to SCOTUS in Pennsylvania case

CCD submits amicus brief to United States Supreme Court in support of Petition for Certiorari filed on behalf of Constitution, Green and Libertarian Parties of Pennsylvania in Rogers v. Cortes. The Petitioners challenge the Third Circuit’s decision inRogers, which upheld Pennsylvania’s requirement that they submit nomination petitions with signatures equal in number to two percent of the vote cast for any winning candidate for statewide office in the previous election. CCD’s amicus brief argues that the requirement severely burdens Petitioners by subjecting minor party candidates to grossly unconstitutional financial burdens of $80,000 or more, by forcing minor party voters to cast write-in votes that the state fails to count, and by terminating Petitioners’ status as qualified political parties in Pennsylvania.
