Looks like some entity is scared of them.

This is the sort of thing you associate with regimes run by men with rows of self-awarded medals on their chests.

American Democracy in Action! You have 2, and only 2, (preselected) choices, citizen. Rejoice!

Voting is an illusion of choice. Why bother?
Seriously, I’m asking the question. Right now the only thing I’m considering voting for is a small mill levy increase for the Cuyahoga Public Library. I’m willing to pay $37 more a year in property taxes to help out the library. Hawkins isn’t on the Ohio ballot except as a write-in, and they probably won’t even bother to count those ballots, so I won’t cast a write-in ballot.
That leaves Libertarian or not voting. The only person I can think of who I’d vote for if she ran as a Democrat is Nina Turner, and she ain’t running this year.

They don’t want you to vote. So why do what they want? They sure as hell never do anything I want them to.
And by not voting you give up what miniscule power you may have had. What power does that 50% that don’t vote have? No politician ever caters to non-voters.
But in my very red corner of rural TN, I just like to vote to piss off the RepubliCONS.

Democracy is not easy! I vote for write in candidates when ever I can. I take a pen and small note book to write their correct names down so I can write them in. Doing this in wisconsin for green party is the best response to their fascism. I roll with the punches and when the system lets down its guard I counter punch just as hard as I can!

This should be illegal if it isn’t already.
I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

Which ever party pushed that through is only hurting themselves. I am one of those people who has voted in every election since JFK. Last time I voted Green. Now with this idiot decision to limit us to two poor choices I may just not vote at all. Which means no votes for the down ballot candidates either. In my case that means some good MN candidates like Walz, Tina Smith and others.
NOT a good idea Wisconsin.

You will have to write in candidates name and maybe party name. They should be listed at polling places. Green party supporters can hand out lists of their write in candidates. You can contribute so green party can run radio ads (tv is to expensive) denouncing democrats for kicking them off ballot. Also green party can investigate those who’s job was to get party on ballot to see in democrat agents infiltrated party.

If they did that in my state, I would vote for Trump. You take
my party away, I’ll vote against yours. For me that would
be a very simple and fast reaction.

People who hang on every word from the Gray Lady get a totally different spin.
The supreme court’s wise ruling prevented the state’s voting from devolving into utter chaos after the Green Party irresponsibly waited until the last minute to try to force its way onto the ballot.
