Indiana ballot access court challenges
Herak v. Lake County Election Board
An independent candidate for city council in Highland has sued the state for being removed from the ballot for voting in the Republican primary. The candidate contends that Indiana has no law that says an independent must not have voted in the primary.
Since then, the Election board held that he will remain off the ballot with a 3-2 vote. Herak's attorney Kenneth Reed said he will be filing for an appeal on the decision. Reed was quote in the article saying that party ties should not be a form of indentured servitude.
