I was told by TN Secretary of State office that majority party candidates are listed first on general election ballots. I cannot find the legal justification for this. Can you direct me to it? Thank you
You must find out whether your city has a process for petitioning to place a referendum on the ballot (also called initiative petition), and if so, what the petition requirements are (method, number of signatures needed, time restrictions, etc.). I would start out by calling the City Clerk's...Read more »
My employer paid for the license for the position he hired me for. I am now moving to another office due to moving and he is making me pay him back but I never signed any contract stating I had to pay him back for said license.
Rather than be concerned about whether you should have to repay your employer you should be more concerned about being terminated if you refuse. Florida employers can terminate employees at any time for any reason.
My driver's license is expired. I tried renewing online and was told I needed to show a copy of my birth certificate. I do not have a "valid" copy of a birth certificate. For those who are not aware, the Florida DMV is currently in the same state of collapse as most of their other... Read more »

There isn't generally a civil cause of action for nepotism or conflict of interest for an aggrieved employee. Depending on who the employer is, there might be an internal grievance procedure. Or, if it can be established that there was discrimination against the employee on the basis of a...Read more »
HOA Elections are coming. 3 seats will be available. Because 1 person is stepping down, some recommend new person elected should just work to complete the term. Does new members' right to a 3-year service prevail or should staggered terms be prioritized?
The by-laws typically control how board members serve so they would control. Usually if a member resigns mid-term then the person replacing them would only serve out the remainder of that term. Staggered terms are in the best interest of the HOA.
Yes, it is improper. In the state of Georgia, voters are not permitted to wear campaign related materials, and T-shirts are considered “materials.” It will not matter that you are wearing a shirt for a 2020 candidate and voting in 2019.
I am a member of Property Owners Association Suissevale, Inc (POASI) in Moultonborough, NH and would like to see the voter registration list. Are they obligated to release this info if a written request was submitted to the office? Suissevale is a Home Owners Association located in... Read more »
Voters lists are public. Go to the town office where the voter checklist is kept. In Manchester, the voters lists are in a lobby for anyone to look through. Your town may have the same setup -but they are public documents open for anyone to look through.
If Trump is found to have gained the presidency as a result of welcoming the help of Russian active measures, the release of stolen DNC documents, breaking campaign finance law, in essence defrauding voters, making him an illegitimate president -- wouldn’t that also make the VP, the First Lady,...

I live in Florida. We have paper ballots that are scanned by a machine when submitted. During the midterm elections, I asked the person administering the scanning machine if I could see the electronic results after I submitted my paper ballot. There had been several reports nation-wide of voting... Read more »
The poll workers cannot access the votes, and there would be no way to confirm how you voted, since all votes are anonymous. You can check ALL recorded votes by submitting a public records request to your county elections department. After a certain point in time, all of those paper ballots will...Read more »
