OKLAHOMA CITY - Independents and voters wanting more of a choice in candidates called on lawmakers on Monday to ease Oklahoma's ballot-access laws, which are regarded as the most restrictive in the country.
"Everyone should have a voice," said Donna Bebo of Fletcher, a Democratic candidate for the 4th Congressional District. "I don't believe that any vote is a wasted vote."
R.J. Harris, an independent candidate for the 4th District who earlier sought the Libertarian Party's presidential nomination, criticized lawmakers for wanting to keep only the Democratic and Republican parties on the ballot.
"The parties no longer represent us," said Harris, of Norman. "It's time for us to realize that party politics is not how we're going to fix this country."
