what is Aadhaar,
exactly? seems to be related to india's voter ID but different.
In all, Secretary of State Kris Kobach gained 325 votes in Johnson County, and Gov. Jeff Colyer gained 301. That brings Kobach's lead statewide to 345 votes, as of Tuesday afternoon, in the race for the GOP candidate for governor.
Although Johnson County's canvassing is now complete, several other Kansas counties are still working to certify their final results. Across the state, there were nearly 9,000 provisional ballots that have to be considered.
The possibility of legal action still hangs over this still too-close-to-call primary election. Friday is the deadline for either candidate to request a recount.
As Washington election officials continue to tally more votes from the August 7 primary for U.S. House, 2nd district, the identity of the second-place finisher has changed twice. Votes posted on Friday, August 10, now show the Libertarian Party candidate, Brian Luke, in second place. Whoever places second will appear on the November ballot under the top-two system.
Here are the results
as of the end of the day, August 10. Luke has 11,738; independent Gary Franco has 11,664; a Democrat has 11,602; and the Republican, Mike the Mover, has 11,249.
If Luke does eventually take second, that will be the first time that any minor party candidate has ever placed first or second in a top-two election, when there was also a Republican and a Democrat in the same race. It will also be the first time that a minor party candidate for U.S. House has appeared on the November ballot in Washington, since the state started using top-two in 2008.
i'm thinking of trying to become an amicus on the merits in tyson timbs v indiana,
the institute for justice's 6th supreme court case.
TYSON TIMBS AND A 2012 LAND ROVER LR2,
i have been an amicus at the court once before, in crawford, and could pitch it to the same coalition.
i have a related state case involving an excessive fines incorporation claim.
looking for help from anyone interested.
the amicus could be from 'robbin stewart and a 1990 geo prim.'
so i guess my first homework is to rea the cert ptition
to be clear, i do not want to write the brief, just join one, as a real party in interest.

this was my crawford amicus republished as an article.
the net number of provisional votes needed to stop kobach.
this number will change, but that's it as of now.
this photo shows a brown county commissioner electioneering in an electioneering-free one, allegedly, says the brother of her opponent.
there turned out to be a reasonable explanation, and the charge was dismissed.
but the board then went on to discuss disclaimers.
Election board: Sign must have disclaimer
If a person puts up a sign on his truck supporting a candidate, it has to have a disclaimer on it to be legal, the Brown County Election Board determined.
Mari Miller, a candidate for Brown County assessor, filed a complaint with the election board regarding a sign that John Kennard affixed to the entire tailgate of his personal pickup truck. It says: “A Republican for Democrat Brenda Woods Brown County Clerk.”
EHS Supervisor / Brown County Commissioner at Brown County Health Dept. / Brown County
John Kennard ... in the Brown County Government Building on Locust Lane in Nashville, Indiana. 201 Locust Lane P.O. Box 281. Nashville, Indiana47448 - possible contact info.
"The jobs alone would be a huge boon to our county," said Brown County Commissioners' president John Kennard. "With our economic situation, I was just ecstatic."
Kennard is a former county commissioner, a former sewer board member and a current health department employee who focuses on septic systems. ok i think i found him...
The sign doesn’t contain a disclaimer that says who paid for it. Miller told the election board that she knew truck sign disclaimers had been an issue during the primary election.
Election board member Susanne Gaudin said that after studying the law, it appeared to her that if Kennard “would like to express his right to free speech,” he would have to put a line of text on the sign that said who paid for it and that it was not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.
Kennard argued that that didn’t make much sense, especially considering the free speech part. “I just find it interesting that I can say I hate anything or anybody on my bumper, but I can’t say I support this,” he said. “… I don’t know why I can burn a flag, but I can’t put that (candidate support sign without a disclaimer) on my truck. … I just feel like we’re picking on something that, I think, as an American, I have a right to state.”
Gaudin said she had the same questions, but that’s what the attorney at the Indiana Election Division told her: A disclaimer is needed. She told Kennard to talk to his legislator if he wanted to get the law changed.
Gaudin also advised Miller to not use her government email account for any future election-related correspondence. Miller said that was an oversight and she understands the reasoning for keeping her current job as county assessor separate from her assessor campaign.
to: brown county indiana election board, Susanne C. Gaudin
cease and desist from any attempt to enforce indiana's unconstitutional disclaimer statute.
i suggest you review Janus (2018), or footnote 11 of Majors v Abell (in 2004),
or stewart v taylor (1997). or mcintrye v ohio, or talley v mcintyre.

In the forthcoming election, I will again refuse to show my photo ID and demand that I may vote and have my vote counted. Even if you have a photo ID and wish not to be inconvenienced, let your conscience be your guide.

Voting is our principal, fundamental right, for without it, our democracy cannot even exist. If the legislators in Jefferson City are bent on correcting improprieties and abuse, they have only to look in the mirror. Intimidating some voters with pretentious and restrictive laws is meant only to disenfranchise them. In this case, me.

“It is critical that the candidates, committees and public know who is behind the messages on signs and banners in our community for better and more informed voting,” said commission Executive Director Kristin Izumi-Nitao. “The 2018 election will be very exciting with 295 candidates running for office, 266 noncandidate committees that includes 16 super PACs, and ballot issues committees who are in formation.”
The Commission staff consists of an executive director, associate director, general counsel, administrative assistant and elections assistant.
