Will at least one US state print ballots without listing Donald Trump due to Section 3 of the 14th Amendment?
Nov 6

This NYTimes article speculates that Donald Trump may be ineligible to run for elected office due to his role in the Jan 6 insurrection. Stephen Calebresi is quoted: "Trump is ineligible to be on the ballot, and each of the 50 state secretaries of state has an obligation to print ballots without his name on them."

From the linked paper:

"Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment forbids holding office by former office holders who then participate in insurrection or rebellion....in particular, it disqualifies former President Donald Trump, and potentially many others, because of their participation in the attempted overthrow of the 2020 presidential election."

I've sold because I am not interested in whether Donald Trump's name is actually on the ballot or not, just whether he is actually disqualified. See this comment: https://manifold.markets/becauseyoudo/will-any-state-use-the-14-amendment#vn0KYEIa4y9lFdcWy0OB

@strutheo the order's been stayed until the 4th (pending the supreme court weighing in), so this will come down to them affirming/rejecting

What if a state prints the ballots without him, but a court orders them to redo them, or the decision is otherwise reversed, and the final ballot presented to voters does have his name?

predicts NO

@B I would consider this a "Yes" resolution.

I'm assuming this resolves N/A in the case that Donald Trump is not the GOP nominee?

@AndrewG Well, he could still run as a third-party candidate in that case. It resolves N/A if he is neither the GOP nominee or a third-party candidate.
