Here’s how the Court’s media advisory describes the issue:
Summary: The chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party (“IDP”) challenged the election of Charlie White as Indiana Secretary of State. The Indiana Recount Commission (“Commission”) heard evidence and rejected the challenge. On IDP’s petition for judicial review, the Marion Circuit Court set aside the Commission’s decision. The Court instructed the Commission to declare that White was not eligible to be a candidate for the office of Secretary of State, and to certify the candidate who received the second highest votes, Vop Osili, as Secretary of State. White and the Commission have appealed the Marion Circuit Court’s decision. The Supreme Court has granted motions to transfer and has assumed jurisdiction over this appeal.
