CBS SACRAMENTO—[1 JUN 2016]  Judge Rejects Bernie Sanders Supporter Lawsuit Seeking California Primary Delay

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – A lawsuit by supporters of Bernie Sanders that claimed election officials in California were depriving unaffiliated voters of their right to cast ballots in the June 7 Democratic presidential primary was filed too late and lacked evidence that federal laws were violated, a judge ruled Wednesday.

The Voting Rights Defense Project had argued that county elections officials were failing to inform unaffiliated voters that they could seek a crossover ballot.

The lawsuit also said poll workers were receiving conflicting instructions about whether they could tell voters of that right.

“This is what I call a case of mass confusion,” attorney William Simpich, who represents the group and other plaintiffs, told the judge in court.

The lawsuit named California Secretary of State Alex Padilla and elections officials in Alameda and San Francisco counties as defendants.

Among other things, it sought radio and TV ads telling unaffiliated voters that they can vote in the primaries of the Democratic, American Independent and Libertarian parties.
