CHARLOTTE (September 9) — The Constitution Party of North Carolina will be joining with the Libertarian Party of North Carolina and the North Carolina Green Party on September 9, 2010 in support of their ballot access lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of several provisions of the law. The Constitution Party strongly believes in the right to vote and to vote effectively and looks forward to a favorable decision for the Libertarian and Green Parties.

In reflection on the issue, the Constitution Party of North Carolina passed a new plank for its 2010 State Platform specifically on the issue of equality in ballot access. Below is the Party’s new platform plank regarding ballot access:

“The Constitution Party of North Carolina steadfastly believes that the right to vote, a right that is of inestimable importance for the preservation of liberty and our Republic, must be secured to all constitutionally qualified citizens regardless of the individual s race, gender, religion or political affiliation. Without free choice at the ballot box we the people fail to be free, therefore, access to the election ballot for all candidates regardless of political affiliation ought to be free and equal. Government has no right to artificially limit voter choice and in consequence limit the voter’s right to vote by placing arbitrary, restrictive and unequal requirements on the participation and placement of political parties and candidates on the election ballot. To encourage free and fair elections, all candidates and parties must be treated equally.”
