McMurray files lawsuit against election commissioners

Jun 9, 2020

The campaign of Democratic Congressional candidate Nate McMurray has filed a lawsuit against both the Democratic and Republican Erie County Board of Elections Commissioners.

The lawsuit claims that with five days left until early voting is set to begin, voters in Erie County have not received any guidance on what their polling places are or when they will be open.

McMurray is running in the June 23 special election for the 27th District congressional seat formerly held by Chris Collins, who is now awaiting prison time for insider trading.

“There has been confusion about balloting and absentee voting and absolutely zero information provided about how and where to participate in early voting,” said McMurray in a statement.
