These pre-election legal challenges must be brought during very strict time periods:
* For challenges to candidate ballot designations and candidate statements, the lawsuit filing period is generally August 8th – 17th.
* For challenges to ballot arguments, the period is generally August 15th – 24th.
These dates are subject to some exceptions, and additional dates and deadlines may apply, so please contact us as soon as possible if you are considering challenging an opponent’s ballot materials.
In addition, you might consider having us review your ballot materials before submitting them to the elections official, to make them as “bulletproof” as possible with regard to a potential legal challenge.
