A healthy democracy relies upon competitive elections. Entrenched political leaders can use ballot access rules to make it difficult for other candidates, even candidates with substantial popular support, to compete. The two major parties frequently support laws that prevent insurgent major party candidates or third parties from presenting their distinctive viewpoints to the voters. Such laws restrict the development of new ideas in politics and deprive voters of a full range of choices. The Brennan Center works to ensure that all credible candidates have a fair chance to appeal to the voters at every stage in the elective process.
