151. A recognized ticket is not authorized to change its name except with the approval of the returning officer. The returning officer shall refuse to approve any change if the proposed new name includes the word “independent” or is likely to mislead the electors as to which ticket they are voting for, or if the application for a change of name is made during the election period within the meaning of section 364.
An application for approval is made by means of a writing filed by the leader of the ticket.
