Republican Congressional Candidate Sues Secretary of State’s Office Over Website Issues

 

A Republican candidate from Boise is asking a federal court to give Idahoans another week to request an absentee ballot due to alleged issues with the Secretary of State’s website Tuesday, the final day to request a ballot.

Nicholas Jones, a Republican running in Idaho’s 1st Congressional District primary against incumbent Russ Fulcher, is asking the U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho to grant a temporary restraining order and emergency injunctive relief in order to extend the deadline for the May 19 primary to Tuesday, May 26, at 8 p.m.

The Idaho Press reports, Ada County Clerk Phil McGrane did say there were issues with the Secretary of State’s website on Tuesday, May 19th.

May 19th was the deadline to request a ballot, but voters have until June 2nd to submit their completed ballot.
