A panel of federal judges threw out a lawsuit dealing with primary ballots sent overseas. Attorney Todd Kincannon argued that the state’s decision to send partial ballots to overseas voters was a violation of federal election law. The attorney says the state Election Commission was in violation of the Voting Rights Act when it opted to send ballots with only federal races on them to military and overseas voters.
But Liz Crum, who represented the Election Commission, argued that Kincannon’s client, a Greenville Senate candidate, didn’t have any standing to bring the complaint. The three judge panel agreed and dismissed the lawsuit. Kincannon says he doesn’t plan to return to the federal court, but expect more complaints will be filed in other courts.
