Lawsuit supports DC write-in candidates
CCD joins lawsuit filed on behalf of write-in candidates and voters in Washington, D.C., to require elections officials to report vote totals for each qualified write-in candidate. Currently, D.C. only includes the total number of all write-in votes in its official vote tally, effectively disenfranchising write-in voters. The case is Libertarian Party, et al. v. District of Columbia Board of Elections and Ethics, Civ. No. 09-5836.
