JACKSON, Miss. (WCBI) — Circuit clerks must redact voters’ birth dates before poll books are open for public inspection, according to the ruling from the State Supreme Court.
State Sen. Chris McDaniel sued to examine voting materials as his campaign searches for evidence of improper voting to challenge the June 24 Republican primary runoff results.
McDaniel’s attorneys are requesting their arguments be heard before the entire state Supreme Court panel because today’s decision was not.
Justices say poll books fall under the state Public Records Act. It specifies that Social Security numbers, telephone numbers, dates of birth and age information must be redacted before the public can examine certain documents.
