Judge in suit by Perry, others seeking inclusion in Va. primary blocks absentee ballot mailing
@ the Associated Press (via the Washington Post)
RICHMOND, Va. — The federal judge hearing a lawsuit by four candidates excluded from Virginia’s Republican presidential primary temporarily has blocked distribution of absentee ballots Monday.
U.S. District Judge John A. Gibney ordered the State Board of Elections to direct local electoral boards to refrain from mailing out absentee ballots until after he makes a ruling Friday on the candidates’ bid to be included on the March 6 ballot. The hearing is set for Friday morning.
Well, I’m certainly on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens with this suit!
