County Appeals State Supreme Court Election Ballot Ruling

Updating from our last coverage of this lawsuit, Pete Demola reports from the North Country “Essex County will appeal a ruling by State Supreme Court Justice Martin Auffredou last month that ordered the county to release electronic ballot scans and cast vote records from a recent local election.

While not named as plaintiffs, the Essex County Board of Supervisors voted to continue to fund and support the appeals process following a 90-minute executive session and a volley of lawmaker discussion on Monday.

The chief reason to appeal, said county attorney Dan Manning, is not to block transparency, but rather to safeguard the privacy of voting. “
