Updated: 2:48 PM - I finally did my pull up!!! It was a New Year’s Resolution that took me ALL YEAR! But I did it.
In this Campaign 2002 Voter Guide, we look at a measure that would change the way Republicans and Democrats get their names on the ballot.
Right now, candidates can petition to get nominated, or they can be nominated at the caucus level by party members. This Amendment would make it so the "petition" is the main way to get added to a ballot.
Supporters of Amendment 29 say because participation is so low for caucuses, a handful of people are deciding who should represent the party on the general election ballot. It also encourages more people to run for office, thus giving voters more choices.
Opponents say eliminating the primary election process of nominating, means voters aren't getting to meet prospective candidates face-to-face. And voters are less likely to participate in party meetings.
Amendment 29 does come with a price tag, an estimated $80,000 the first year and $64,000 every year after that. The money would pay for additional petitions and people to count them.
