Case Summary

NOTE: This case is being tracked in close to real time by the Stanford/MIT Healthy Elections Project. So for information, see their tracker.

According to their summary as of 09/01/2020,

Candidate challenged State of MD's 1% threshold requirement for inclusion on General Election ballot. Plaintiff candidate claimed 1st and 14th amendment right violations as a result of the enforcement of the signature requirement. Candidate requested relief from the 1% threshold requirement as follows: 1) to reduce the 1% requirement to match the 0.5% requirement imposed on Green and Libertarian parties as a result of a settlement in 20-cv-1253-ELH; 2) to extend the deadline to at least 9/8/2020; and 3) to largely abrogate the signature requirement due to the current public health emergency (reduce to 0.005% - roughly the number of signatures the candidate had already collected).
