UPDATE: I spoke with my sister, who is a lawyer on call for the Democratic Party during election season (they started sending out 'clean' 'unjammable-for-the-election-day' phones only to be used in case of irregularity) and said:
Injunction must be filed before end of day requesting a PROPER ballot and noting the lateness of receipt of the flawed ballot.
Okay, sports fans, here we GO!
Laurens Town Clerk TODAY notified anti-frack candidate Laura Malloy of a problem.
the ballot, as published in the Daily Star a week ago, and based upon petitions filed with County Board of elections SHOULD have:
Linda Reeves (Independent( anti-drilling)
Rick Brockaway (R) (pro-drilling)
Wilber Cleveland (R) (less pro-drilling)
1 candidate for councilman, unexpired term
Laura Malloy (No Drill) (anti-drilling)
HOWEVER--on the ballot LINDA REEVES has been moved down there with Laura so that the two anti-drilling candidates are running AGAINST one another and the two pro-drilling candidates are running unopposed by Linda Reeves.
SHOULD WE CONTACT THE NY STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE? WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS/REMEDIES?
Laurens is a VERY IMPORTANT place for drilling to be stopped in Otsego County given the very very high water table there.
