Pennsylvania Does Not Appeal the Ballot Access Wins in U.S. District Court from the March 2, 2015 Decision
Ballot Access News - Pennsylvania state government attorneys did not appeal any of the three points won on March 2, 2015, by the Libertarian and Green Parties in Green Party of Pennsylvania v Aichele. The government deadline to appeal was June 11, but no government appeal was lodged.
The three points that had been won on March 2, 2015, were: (1) the ban on out-of-state circulators is unconstitutional; (2) the requirement that each petition sheet be notarized is unconstitutional; (3) the ban on a voter signing the petitions of different petitioning parties, even if they are running for the same office, is unconstitutional.
The two parties are appealing the points they lost: (1) whether voters from different counties can sign the same petition sheet; (2) whether persons who are not registered to vote but who are eligible to register to vote can sign petitions.
