BREAKING: Legal Action Taken to Correct Petition

June 26, 2015

We recently identified a significant amount of signatures that were erroneously rejected by the Registrar of Voters. We notified the Registrar of the clear error and requested he do the right thing and make the correction. Late yesterday, the Registrar notified us that his office had "completed their work" and that he would not make the correction.

This morning we filed a Petition for Writ of Mandamus with the 19th JDC, which asks the Court to force the Registrar to make this correction, which should cause our petition to be certified and sent to the Governor.

The error was clear and we are now relying on the presiding Judge to make it right and cause the necessary correction.

We will not stop until every valid signature is counted, ensuring the voice of the people is heard.
