U.S. Supreme Court Sets Conference Date for Nevada Republican Election Law Case

Published on December 24, 2013, by in Uncategorized.

The U.S. Supreme Court will consider whether to hear Republican Party of Nevada v Miller, 13-442, at its January 10, 2014 conference. This is the case over whether the plaintiffs have standing to challenge the inclusion of “None of these candidates” on Nevada primary and general election ballots, for statewide office. The Ninth Circuit had said none of the plaintiffs have standing. The plaintiffs include some Republican candidates for presidential elector in the 2012 election.

Five minor parties have filed an amicus curiae brief in this case, urging the court to take the case to recognize more standing for political parties. They are the Libertarian, Green, Constitution, Independent American, and America’s Parties.

The original case was filed to challenge “None of these candidates” on the basis that voters who choose this option are being discriminated against, because if “None of these candidates” wins, there is no consequence. Whichever candidate gets the most votes wins, regardless of the vote total for “None of these candidates.”
