Abstract Third party candidates (Socialist Equality Party) allege that deadline and signature-threshold requirements for ballot access, as applied to them under the current pandemic circumstances, effectively prevent their addition to the ballot and therefore violate their First and Fourteenth Amendment rights. They seek either an extension of the filing deadline, or an injunction prohibiting CA from printing November ballots unless and until the third party candidates' names are included.
