Minnesota Supreme Court Leaves Trump on Ballot

On September 12, the Minnesota Supreme Court issued a unanimous opinion in Martin v Simon, A16-1436.

This is the case in which Minnesota’s Democratic Party State Chair said Trump should be removed from the ballot because the Republicans didn’t follow State law, concerning their choice of alternate Presidential Electors.

During the Republican State Convention, they did not elect Alternate Electors for the U.S. Electoral College. So the Central Committee selected them. But their rules says they must be elected by a Convention vote.

The decision says the case is rejected because it was filed two weeks after the plaintiff knew about the problem.

The decision says nothing about the merits of the lawsuit.
