Michigan federal district court enters order favorable to independent candidate for AG

The federal District Court in Michigan has entered an order enjoining enforcement of Michigan’s ballot access requirements for statewide independent candidates against Christopher Graveline! Relying on Graveline’s evidence that no statewide independent candidate had ever complied with Michigan’s 30,000-signature requirement, the District Court ruled that “his name must be placed on the November 6, 2018 general election ballot as an independent candidate for the Office of Michigan Attorney General,” provided that he submits 5,000 valid signatures. Graveline had collected 14,157 signatures and is confident that more than 5,000 are valid. See press coverage from the Detroit Free Press here and from Michigan Live here.
