Brad Dacus, President of PJI, said, "It's unfortunate when the Secretary of State and other election officials in their official capacity treat a referendum effort as a partisan debate. It is not. It's about letting the voice of the people be heard. We want to make sure every signature is counted, and every voice is heard."
The suit seeks to have the Secretary of State, Debra Bowen, certify the referendum for the November 2014 ballot. It notes that election officials have unlawfully disqualified signatures, causing thousands of voters to be disenfranchised.
