“ACLU of Indiana Challenges Marion County Judicial Election System”

Press release: “Indianapolis – Marion County voters have less influence than they may think about which judges are chosen for the Marion Superior Court. Today the ACLU of Indiana, on behalf of Common Cause Indiana, filed a lawsuit challenging state law governing that process to ensure voters of every political stripe can cast meaningful votes for all judgeships to be filled in Marion County. ‘The system for electing judges in Marion County is unique in Indiana, and possibly the nation,’ said ACLU of Indiana Legal Director Ken Falk. ‘It is imperative that we ensure that when the State opts to fill positions through the ballot box, it does so in a manner that allows Hoosiers’ votes to matter.’”
