    No one Files for Any Office in North Dakota Minor Party Primaries

    No one Files for Any Office in North Dakota Minor Party Primaries
    April 12th, 2008
    Filing for the June North Dakota primary closed on April 11. The Libertarian Party and the Constitution Party both are entitled to their own primaries, but no one filed in either party’s primary for any public office. This has no effect on the presidential part of the ballot, of course, and those parties will be on for president.

    North Dakota has few minor party candidates. They are discouraged by a law that says they must poll 300 votes in the open primary. Similar laws were found unconstitutional in both Washington and Minnesota in 2004. North Dakota is the only state that still requires a party candidate whose name is on the primary ballot to not only outpoll any other candidates seeking the same nomination, but also to worry about polling a specified minimum number of votes.

    "This political train-wreck Republicans face can largely be traced to Bush’s philosophical metamorphosis from a traditional, non-interventionist conservative to the neoconservatives’ exemplar of a 'War President', and his positioning of the Republicans as the 'War Party'."

    In New Hampshire, we often have major offices where no one runs for them. If you run, you win. Alot of libertarians are getting elected as Republicans and Democrats that way (and some of them are winning by running races the old fashioned way too).
