If Indiana's Current Election Laws Were in Force in 1988, Fulani Would Have Received Indiana's Presidential Electoral Votes

Ballot access expert Richard Winger, of Ballot Access News, this morning writes me the following:

". . . don't forget that in 1988, both the Democrats and Republicans in Indiana were late to file their presidential elector slate. Therefore, if this year's severe rules had existed in 1988, Indiana voters would have had a November 1988 ballot with no one on it for president except Lenora Fulani. To verify this, anyone can read Fulani v Hogsett, 917 F 2d 1028 (7th cir, 1990). Furthermore, write-ins weren't allowed in Indiana until" . . . "the Paul case in federal court in 1990. Fulani would have got Indiana's electoral votes by default."
