Indiana county GOP wants Libertarians off ballot

GOP challenges Libertarian Party candidates - Herald Bulletin: Local News - Ken de la Bastide:

August 3, 2015 - "The Madison County Election Board is being asked to remove the five Libertarian Party candidates from the November ballot.

"A complaint was filed with the election board by Russ Willis, chairman of the Madison County Republican Party, alleging state election laws have been violated by the Libertarian Party.

"State law requires that local candidates be nominated at a convention and that ballot vacancies have to be certified by the chairman of the state party.

"The applications for a candidate to be included on the ballot, which were [filed] with the Madison County Clerk's office, indicate there was no local party convention and the vacancies were certified by Greg Noland, chairman of the Madison County Libertarian Party.

"The candidacies being challenged include those of Rob Jozwiak for Anderson mayor; Tracy Walser for Anderson city clerk; Chris Nealis, city council District 5; Robert Walser, city council, District 6; and Brad Kirby, city council at-large."
