North Carolina: North Carolina Constitution Party Wins Ballot Access Lawsuit


On August 22, U.S. District Court Judge Louise Flanagan, a Bush Jr. appointee, issued a 17-page order in Poindexter v Strach, e.d., 5:18cv-366. The order puts three Constitution Party nominees on the ballot, for legislature and county office. The State Board of Elections had kept them off the ballot because earlier in the year, they had run in Republican or Democratic primaries and lost those primaries. But at the time the Constitution Party nominated them, there was no law preventing a party like the Constitution Party from nominating such “sore losers.”
