Texas Ballot Order

Miller v. Hughs

Lawsuit filed on behalf of an individual voter, the Texas Democratic Party, Democratic National Committee (DNC), Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) challenging Texas’ ballot order statute, which requires candidates of the political party of the governor to be listed first on the ballot in all elections. The complaint alleges that this statute treats similarly situated candidates differently without sufficient justification and violates the First and 14th Amendments. The court dismissed the case for lack of jurisdiction.
