COURT SAYS MICHIGAN PRIMARY UNCONSTITUTIONAL
(2007-11-16)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Court of Appeals today upheld
a lower court's ruling that the January 15th presidential primary
law is unconstitutional.
In a 2-1 ruling, Judges Patrick Meter and Donald Owens said the
law clearly allows information from a publicly-funded election to
be used for private purposes.
The law lets the Michigan Democratic and Republican parties keep
track of voters' names and whether they took a Democratic or GOP
primary ballot -- but provides no public access to that
information.
State officials had hoped the Court of Appeals would let the
Jan. 15 primary go forward.
