Voting Records Lawsuit Hearing Set for Thursday

By  | 

Jackson, Miss. A federal judge has scheduled a hearing for Thursday in Jackson in a lawsuit filed by a group seeking access to voter records in Mississippi.

U.S. District Judge Nancy F. Atlas of Texas will hear arguments from the True the Vote organization. The lawsuit seeks voter rolls from nine counties.

The plaintiffs say in court documents that federal law requires authorities to release voting rolls and poll books without erasing voters' personal information.

Mississippi authorities say it's proper to remove birth dates.

True the Vote is looking for people who voted in the June 3 Democratic primary and then illegally crossed over to vote in the June 24 Republican runoff between U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran and challenger Chris McDaniel.

Many of the 22 residents who joined the lawsuit are McDaniel supporters.
