So-Called “Sham Candidate” Withdraws from Arizona Special State Senate Election

Published on October 6, 2011, by in General.

On October 6, according to this story, Olivia Cortes withdrew from the November 8, 2011 special recall election for Arizona State Senate in Senator Russell Pearce’s district. However, her name will remain on ballots, but notices will be posted at polling places saying she is no longer a candidate. If anyone votes for her anyway, the vote won’t be counted. The lower state court hearing in the lawsuit over whether she should be removed from the ballot has been canceled.

  2. So there’s a candidate (sham or not) on the ballot, but you aren’t allowed to vote for her? Yeah, that makes sense.
