Name Ordering On Primary Election Ballot

Concerning modification of the procedure for ordering of names on primary election ballots, and, in connection therewith, making conforming amendments to the procedure for ordering of names on a certificate of designation by assembly.
2023 Regular Session
Elections & Redistricting
Bill Summary

Current law requires candidates by petition to be placed after candidates designated and certified by assembly on the primary election ballot. The bill eliminates this requirement and instead requires all candidates to be placed on the primary ballot in an order determined by lot. In conformity with this change, the bill also eliminates the requirements that a certificate of designation by assembly indicate the order of the vote received by candidates for each office and that candidates who receive the same number of votes be ordered by lot.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
