MEA-MFT v. FoxAnnotate this Case
At issue in this case was a petition challenging the legal sufficiency of LR-126, a referendum passed by the Legislature that would eliminate election-day voter registration and require all electors to register or to change their voter registration information by 5 p.m. on the last Friday preceding election day. The Legislature directed that the measure be placed on the ballot at the November 2014 general election. Petitioners contended that the title of the bill, which will appear on the ballot, was inaccurate and misleading. The Supreme Court (1) denied Petitioners’ request to declare LR-126 legally deficient and void and order its removal from the ballot; but (2) ordered the Attorney General to clarify the bill title’s reference to the National Voter Registration Act.
