Brian Nelson and Jason Sena Quoted in NJ Globe Article “RNC Sues Mercer County Board of Elections to Force Release of Ballot Cure Letters”

In the New Jersey Globe article, “RNC Sues Mercer County Board of Elections to Force Release of Ballot Cure Letters,” author David Wildstein addresses the Republican National Committee’s claims that the Mercer County Board of Education board violated New Jersey’s Ballot Cure and Open Public Records Acts. As local counsel for the RNC, Archer attorneys Brian Nelson and Jason Sena filed a lawsuit against the Mercer Election Board stating Mercer County failed in providing ballot cure letters related to the June 2022 primary election.

“The overwhelming majority of election officials throughout the state responded to these requests in an expeditious manner,” Brian Nelson and Jason Sena state in lawsuit filings. The Republican National Committee wants a judge to order the Mercer County Board of Elections to fulfill requests for copies of ballot cure letters within 72 hours in future elections. Nelson and Sena continued their brief by saying, “The effective administration of elections requires election officials like the Board of Elections to be transparent and cooperative when dealing with members of the public….the Board of Elections’ denial of the RNC’s simple requests for public records accomplishes neither, and was unlawful.”
