Yesterday evening, Governor Fallin signed HB2181 into law. As we have said many times before, this is the first time since 1974 that the Oklahoma government has eased ballot access voluntarily. Yet, there is still much work to be done.
This law now goes into effect on November 1, 2015. After that time, new parties will need only 24,745 valid signatures to form. So there is a good chance that the 2016 ballot will have more than 2 parties represented and more than 2 candidates for President.
