Madison - October 21, 2015: In order to get on the ballot, a candidate for president of the United States must meet a variety of complex, state-specific filing requirements and deadlines. These regulations, known as ballot access laws, determine whether a candidate or party will appear on an election ballot. In an upcoming webinar, Ballotpedia will walk through the processes, requirements and provide the essential information needed to cover the 2016 election.

Ballotpedia’s webinar will be held on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at 11:00 CDT.
