Why do Republicans hate democracy?
The lawsuit says the Marion County Election Board and County Clerk Beth White, a Democrat, are instructing poll workers to run all absentee ballots into a precinct’s machine on Tuesday. They have received no instructions on what to do with challenged absentee ballots, which the suit says should be treated as provisional ballots and set aside — not counted on Election Day.
John said a key issue is that the Election Board has not examined in-person and mailed-in absentee ballots before the election to throw out those lacking signatures. Those missing a signature — possibly dozens — could become subject to challenge at the polls Tuesday.
