Historical/Biographical Note

Richard Lee Winger (1943-), of San Francisco, CA, is the publisher and editor of Ballot Access News (1985- ), and is on the editorial board of the  Election Law Journal. He publishes analysis, statistics and legal information and supports more equitable laws allowing access to the ballot for minor parties. In 1985 Winger helped found, along with several minor party representatives, including the Communist Party's Si Gerson, the Coalition for Free and Open Elections (COFOE). The group attempts to co-ordinate action and provide mutual support among the various minor parties for efforts to liberalize and reform ballot access laws.
