Maurer Write In Candidate for CT State Senate Special Election

Originally posted at Green Party Watch:

According to the Stamford Times, Rolf Maurer of the Connecticut Green Party failed to get enough signatures to appear as a balloted candidate for the Feb 22 special election to fill a vacant seat on the Connecticut State Senate. He will instead be running as a write in candidate:

Maurer, who ran for Stamford mayor in 2009 and for state representative in 2010, needed 251 voter signatures by Jan. 18 to get on the ballot. He did not get the amount of signatures needed, so he will be considered a write-in candidate.

    The green party should sue to get the number lowered. In the special election with about 8 days to get signatures the same number of signatures as a regular election when you have about 8 months are required.
