Summary as introduced:
Party designations on the ballot. Extends to local elections, other than school board and soil and water conservation district elections, the identification of candidates by party name on the ballot. Current law provides for party identification of candidates on ballots only for federal, statewide, and General Assembly elections. The bill also allows any locality to provide by charter or by ordinance for nonpartisan elections for the governing body without any party identification on the ballot for governing body candidates. The bill explicitly provides that an endorsement by a political party of a candidate who qualifies for the ballot through the petition process is not grounds for identifying that candidate by the party's name. This bill is identical to HB 1405.
