    I’m just curious, how is “Americans Elect” going to keep folks from hijacking the ballot access at the State Level?

    I mean, for example, if they were able to get on the ballot in Michigan, I know for a fact that it wouldn’t be real difficult for a local “caucus” to form and nominate local candidates.
