Three Marion County judicial candidates and two candidates for the Indiana House on Thursday sued the Marion County Election Board and the Board of Voter Registration for access to the county’s voter registration database. The complaint, filed in Marion Circuit Court, says the voter registration office unlawfully denied requests to access the database for their campaigns. The plaintiffs are running against their parties’ endorsed candidates in the May 8 primary.
They include Democrats Greg Bowes and Mark King and Republican Paul Ogden, who are running for Marion Superior Court judge. Democrats Zach Mulholland, a candidate in House District 100, and Brian Cooper, a candidate in House District 92, also joined the suit. The complaint asks the Circuit Court judge to order voter registration to immediately release copies of its database.
