ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the validity of placing unnecessary limits on voting and associational freedoms through a ballot access case, Clingman v. Beaver, which was filed in the U.S. in 2005. The right to vote candidates of one's choice into office is at the core of representative democracy. The Court found several of Oklahoma's justifications sufficiently important to justify the restrictions on parties and voters.
