Nebraska Bill to Choose All Presidential Electors with Statewide Vote Advances
(from: Ballot Access News @ April 24, 2017, 10:00 PM)

On April 18, the Nebraska Government, Military & Veterans Affairs Committee passed LB 25. It changes the way Nebraska elects presidential electors. Currently each U.S. House district elects its own elector. The bill would change that so that all the electoral votes go to the winner of the statewide presidential popular vote. Currently Maine and Nebraska are the only states in which each U.S. House district elects its own elector.


Nebraska Legislature Passes Bill to Make it Easier for Parties to Remain on Ballot
(from: Ballot Access News @ April 24, 2017, 09:56 PM)

On April 24, the Nebraska Senate unanimously approved LB 34. It adds a second method for a party to remain on the ballot. The old law requires a party to poll 5% for any statewide race at either of the last two elections. The bill says a party also remains on the ballot if it has at least 10,000 registered members.

The only three parties on the Nebraska ballot now are the Republican, Democratic, and Libertarian Parties. The Libertarian Party has slightly more than 11,000 registrants. Therefore, assuming the bill is signed into law by the Governor, the Libertarian Party won’t need to run any statewide candidates in 2018 if it doesn’t wish to, and would still remain on the ballot.

Last Brief Filed in U.S. Supreme Court in Montana Republican Party Open Primaries Lawsuit
(from: Ballot Access News @ April 24, 2017, 08:17 PM)

On April 24, the Montana Republican Party and some county Republican Parties filed this reply brief in the U.S. Supreme Court. The briefs are now all submitted, in both this case and the Hawaii Democratic Party case. Probably the U.S. Supreme Court will soon set a conference date for both cases. Both cases challenge open primaries. In both cases, the lower courts said the parties haven’t proved that open primaries injure them. In both cases, the major parties argue that they are harmed by never knowing which voters are helping choose their nominees. Unlike the rules in some open primary states, in Hawaii and Montana the voter’s choice of which party primary to choose is secret.
