Rule change leads to thrown out signatures

A new rule for signatures on candidate nomination forms is keeping some people off of this fall's ballot.

Government Accountability Board spokesman Reid Magney says the Legislature passed a law requiring people to print, and legibly sign, their names on the forms.

He says the printing requirement is new, and some candidates had old forms, that didn't include that. He says those signatures were invalidated.

The rule took affect in April.

Craig Krueger of Hilbert planned to challenge Republican Rep. Paul Tittl of Manitowoc, as an Independent. All of his signatures were thrown out because he used an old form, without lines for printed names.
