The latest news on this front comes from a really interesting article at Ballot Access News written by the widely-respected election expert and advocate for third party/independent ballot access Richard Winger. Take a look at this excerpt:
There are Tennessee bills to improve ballot access pending in each house of the legislature. They cut the number of signatures for party recognition from 2.5% of the last gubernatorial vote, to one-half of 1% of the last gubernatorial vote.
HB 2067 had been scheduled for a House floor vote on March 14, but the day’s session didn’t get to the bill, so it will be brought up on the next day on which the House is in session. SB 2189 has a hearing in the Senate Local Government Committee on March 15, Tuesday.
