I urge all citizens of Virginia to boycott the primaries.Reject your GOP picks.
How can you vote without having a choice? This is unconstitutional.

Thanks for this very informative article. I hope the state legislature will revisit the issue of ballot requirements. Virginia's laws seem awfully restrictive compared to other states.

That's right. Encourage people not to vote. That will solve the problem. It's Newt's problem he's not on the ballot. Didn't get enough signatures. So you want anyone who can get 10 signatures on a petition to get on the ballot? Imagine what that would be like.

Tere's nothing unconstitutional about a state having specific requirements to be on the ballot. You sound like a flaming liberal

It would be unconstitutional for the people of Virginia not have the opportunity to select the candidate of their choice,as in a government for the people by the people.
I dont give a da*n about Virginia's insane registration laws.I believe in the rights of individual Americans to be able to vote freely and also of the rights of the candidates to be able to run for office freely, as the laws in the United States imply and insist.Why do we need specific requirements for someone to run for President?
Apparently one of those requirements is a multi million dollar bank account.Another would be a degree from Harvard.The list goes on and on etc...
Each and every candidate running for the Presidency should be allowed on any ballot in the State of Virginia, since it is part of the United states of America, or is it another country?
