Court Date Set in Election Contest Complaint

A court date has been set in the election contest complaint against the Crawford County Board of Election Commissioners. The hearing will be Friday, July 15 at 9am in Franklin County.

Jody Harris, Republican Primary Candidate for Arkansas House of Representatives District 25, originally filed the complaint against the Crawford County Board of Election Commissioners Bill Coleman, Mike Moxley, and Memory Boucher; and opponent Chad Puryear, on Tuesday, June 14.

In the complaint, Harris and her attorney challenge the certification of the House District 25 Republican primary race by the Crawford County Board of Election Commissioners, and they seek to void the results and not install the plaintiff or any other person into office.

My attorney filed an election contest lawsuit against the members of the Crawford County Board of Election Commissioners,” said Jody Harris, Republican Primary Candidate for House District 25. “My Arkansas House District 25 opponent is also a party only to comply with legal requirements related to due process.”

Harris went on to say, “Because of how the HD25 race in Crawford County was conducted, there is no way to know if this was a fair election.  There is no transparency. Win or lose, election integrity must be maintained for candidates and voters to know our elections are not only free and fair but also appear to be free and fair. I will continue to keep you informed in this process.

Harris’ attorney, Clint Lancaster, said this lawsuit is not just about politics. “This lawsuit is about more than the House District 25 race.  Instead, it is about election integrity and transparency.  I commend Jody Harris for staying in the fight for a free and fair election and look forward to the upcoming litigation.”
