On August 18, the New York Libertarian and Green Parties filed this brief in the Second Circuit in Libertarian Party of New York v New York State Board of Elections, 21-1464. This is the case against the 2020 bill that increased the statewide petition from 15,000 to 45,000 signatures, and altered the definition of a party from one that had polled 50,000 votes for Governor, to one that had polled 2% for the office at the top of the ballot in the preceding election.
The parties are seeking injunctive relief to have their qualified party status restored. The U.S. District Court had denied injunctive relief.
