ACLU of Utah Investigates Ogden City Election Complaints
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Seeks Information From Voters Who Experienced Problems
OGDEN, UT – The American Civil Liberties Union of Utah will be looking into complaints it has received regarding election irregularities in the November 6th mayoral race in Ogden, Utah, as it considers potential action.
“We have received complaints of election irregularities including inappropriate use of voter challenges, denial of provisional ballots, intimidation of voters and electioneering at the polling places,” said Karen McCreary, Executive Director of the ACLU of Utah. “If substantiated, these actions not only undermine the trust and confidence Utah voters should have in the electoral process but they also violate the Utah constitution and state law.”
The ACLU of Utah is seeking information from anyone who encountered problems voting in the Ogden mayoral election on Election Day or who observed incidents in which fellow voters were discouraged from voting.
Information should be directed via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone to 801-521-9862, extension 101.
Every month, you'll receive regular roundups of the most important civil rights and civil liberties developments. Remember: a well-informed citizenry is the best defense against tyranny.
