RZ18 - (No Need To) Fight For Your Right (To Party) Act

Whereas in previous elections, independent senators without a party endorsement were not listed on the ballot, and

Whereas senators don't represent their party, but their province, and

Whereas the previous ballot design gave an unfair advantage to party-affiliated senators, and

Whereas the organic law has been amended in recent years, effectively allowing the chancery to make the changes proposed in this bill, and

Whereas it would be better if crucial elements of the ballot content were not left up to the discretion of the chancery, but explicitly stated in the law, now

Therefore the following sub-sections shall be added to Lex.B.2. between Lex.B.2.3. and the current Lex.B.2.4:

"2.4 Any eligible candidates for a seat in the senate will be given the opportunity to register themselves with the Secretary of State before the start of the elections. Registered candidates will be listed as a candidate on the ballot for that province, not limiting voters ability to vote for write-in candidates.

2.5 Endorsements of Senatorial candidates by political parties shall not be listed in the part of the ballot relating to senatorial elections."

Furthermore, the sub-sections directly following the new sub-section 2.5. will be re-numbered accordingly.
