Governor  Jindal has vetoed a bill that would have changed election ballots  for candidates  not  affiliated  with  the  Republicans  or Democrats.


Current  ballots  assign  the  label  "No Party" to such candidates;  the  bill  would  have  changed  that to "Independent". Jindal says he vetoed the bill to avoid problems  with  existing law that  says  no  party  can  register  in  Louisiana  under  the name "Independent".
