Nick Reisman reports on a court ruling brought by state Constitutional Convention supporter Evan Davis who sought to have the con con ballot question placed on the front of the the November ballot for better voter attention. A state supreme court justice rejected his complaint against the state Board of Elections.
“Davis had filed suit against the state Board of Elections to require the question over whether to hold the convention on the front of the ballot. A supporter of the convention, Davis is challenging the ballot placement given it’s the first time in recent political history the once every 20 year referendum is being put to voters on paper, not lever machines.”
Davis plans to appeal.
