On May 19, the Maryland Green and Libertarian Parties filed a ballot access lawsuit. Maryland Green Party v Hogan, 1:20cv-1253.

The parties ask for a suspension of the law that requires them to submit 10,000 signatures in order to regain their political party status. The lawsuit hasn’t yet been assigned to a judge.

The lawsuit asks the court to reduce the signature requirement to 1,000 signatures from registered Maryland voters, to be submitted to the Board of Elections by August 3, and to use a less restrictive determination as to the validity of the signatures.
