Issues

Controversy

Challenge to election

On October 16, 2013, five of the Independent candidates filed a petition with the secretary of the Senate challenging the special election.[4]

The complaint questioned the constitutionality, legality and validity of the election on three main issues, and sought to have the full Senate vote to label the election result “void.”[4]

The candidates claimed three issues with the election should invalidate it: The use of electronic voting machines with no paper backup that will not be “impounded,” that independent candidates were not included in the two debates and that the Republican candidate appears in the first two spaces on ballots, despite a low turnout during the primary.[4]

The petition also sought to have the Senate vote to keep Jeffrey Chiesa, who was appointed following the death of Frank Lautenberg, in office until the petition is investigated and decided.[4]
