Massachusetts Legislator Says He Will Introduce a Bill Next Year to Undo the Harm done by Massachusetts Supreme Court's Opinion of June 18

On June 18, Massachusetts Representative Dan Winslow (R-Norfolk) said he will introduce a bill in 2013 to let unqualified parties have flexibility to choose their presidential and vice-presidential nominees in the late spring or summer of election years. This bill has yet to be fleshed out. It might permit an unqualified party to circulate a petition to qualify itself, without the need to list any candidates to be listed on the petition. Already, 39 other states have such a procedure.

Winslow is virtually certain to be re-elected in November 2012, because no one is running against him. Winslow understands the problems with the Massachusetts Supreme Court’s opinion of June 18, because he has been the ballot access attorney for Americans Elect. He was already planning some other election reforms bills for 2013 as well.
