    Efforts by the Libertarian Party to win back its official listing on New Hampshire ballots received a setback Thursday when a federal judge upheld a 2014 state law that puts a time limit on the period during which the party can gather the thousands of necessary supporting signatures. The law in question, HB 1542, "prescribes a reasonable and nondiscriminatory ballot-access restriction that is justified by the state's interest in requiring political parties to demonstrate a sufficient level of support," wrote U.S. District Court Judge Paul Barbadoro in a decision, which rejects a challenge to the law filed by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire.
