Abstract According to their summary as of 11/05/2020,
In California, nomination papers for an independent nominee for President must be circulated for signatures and receive the signatures of 1% of the statewide registered voters for the nominee to appear on the ballot. California issued social distancing orders in response to COVID-19, which did not explicitly provide an exception for nominee signature collection. Congressional candidate Blankenship and registered voter Pursche sued for a judgment declaring California’s ballot-access requirements unconstitutional and for TROs to prohibit their enforcement for California’s November 3, 2020 general election.
