Ninth Circuit Will Hear "None of These Candidates" on September 14

Published on August 31, 2012, by in General.

On August 30, the Ninth Circuit set a hearing for 9 a.m., September 14, to hear Townley v Miller, 12-16881. This is the lawsuit over whether the Nevada version of “None of the Above” (specifically, “None of These Candidates”) should be on the November 2012 ballot.

September 20 is the date on which states must mail overseas absentee ballots, under federal law. Many states are claiming they must start printing ballots on September 7, but it seems clear that Nevada won’t be printing ballots until after the hearing on September 14. Also, three states don’t even hold their congressional primaries until September 11, so they won’t be printing ballots until the primary votes are counted. These facts should cause one to be skeptical of any state that says it must start printing ballots on September 7.

    Will any of the “None of the Above” be called to testify?

    #1, :)

    In Appeals Court hearings, there is no testimony. Appeals courts are not supposed to hear new evidence; they just decide if the lower court ruling was correct based on the evidence available to the lower court.

    Damn…! I was hoping to hear testimony from “Someone Else.”
