Party Needs "Declared" Candidate

In the past, I was able to play as Not Seeking or Undecided as a third party candidate, but now after updating, it says that a candidate has to be "Declared"-- is this a part of the update or something I can get around? I really enjoyed playing as Not Seeking and seeing how I could build a third party campaign later in a primary season.

Each party requires at least 1 candidate who is decided, because otherwise a party might end up with 0 candidates, and that causes an error. You can still set a candidate to Undecided or Not Seeking, just not all the candidates for a given party.

What about turning off individual parties for a game entirely? Is that still an option, or does this new mechanism prevent that?

I don't like that.  I like starting campaigns with everyone undecided to see who will jump in.

I agree because I enjoy that too, and also playing from the outside to leverage media in support of candidates vying for a nomination.. setting the playing field closer to my ideal to enter the race. But I also had my fair share of problems when playing this way, and like Anthony said, that may have been a cause of problems. I’d rather have it so I could make a blank candidate with no resources/ballot access as a “primary challenger” than have persistent problems.. for now at least
