County Republican organizations around the state filed lawsuits attempting to remove Democrats from the line of the state’s Workers Family Party ahead of the June primary elections.
The move comes as local Republicans in at least three counties have also tried to co-opt the WFP line – a move they take after other small parties they rely on to increase the total number of votes. their election in elections was triggered by ballot against the new state electoral threshold. .
Lawsuits filed with the state Supreme Court were filed in Albany, Onondaga, Monroe, Niagara, Rensselaer, Saratoga and Schenectady counties, according to court records and media reports. The lawsuits allege that the Family Workers’ executive committee has failed to properly authenticate the recommendations from Democrats seeking to run under WFP guidelines.
