Election Law Blog recently published a new piece by FSFP Legal Fellow Ben Horton on the need for Secretaries of State across the country to abide by Section 3 of the 14th Amendment and bar former president Trump from any future ballot based on his incitement of the January 6 insurrection.

The following are excerpts from the new piece:

Trump is ineligible for the office of the presidency. Every state has an interest and a duty in protecting the integrity of its ballot and preventing unqualified candidates from running for office. They should not wait for Congress to ensure that the Constitution is enforced.
