Challenge to election
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.”
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.
Olivera ran in the 2013 special election for the U.S. Senate, representing New Jersey. Olivera ran as the Unity is Strength candidate. He was defeated in the general election on October 16, 2013.
