Joshua Cole Campaign Files Federal Lawsuit to Demand 55 Ballots Be Counted

The Virginia House Democratic Caucus today issued the following statement from our attorney Marc Elias in light of today’s meeting of the Stafford County Board of Elections:

“We are disappointed with today’s decision of the Stafford County Electoral Board not to count the 55 absentee ballots erroneously excluded from this year’s election results. As a result, we have filed suit on behalf of the Joshua Cole campaign in the Federal Court in Alexandria to demand these lawful voters’ ballots be counted in accordance with the law and U.S. Constitution.”
