North Carolina Ballot Access Bill is Defeated in Senate, 33-5

The North Carolina legislature adjourned early in the morning of July 3. The ballot access reform bill was brought up in the Senate during the waning minutes of the session, but it was defeated 33-5. North Carolina continues to require more signatures than any other to get on the ballot for President (using the easier method), except for California. North Carolina also is tied for having the earliest petition deadline (when the method with the later deadline is compared in every state). Thanks to Barbara Howe and Jordon Greene for this news. The bill had passed the House in 2011.
