Mona Reis, the owner of Presidential Women's Center in West Palm Beach FL,  filed a lawsuit yesterday to preserve her right to vote.  Her absentee ballot was tossed without recourse because it was determined that her signature didn't match.  She was afforded no other way to verify her identity and have her vote counted.

This situation was detailed yesterday HERE.

According to the Palm Beach Post:

West Palm Beach woman sues elections supervisor to challenge signature rule for absentee ballots, be allowed to vote

Well-known Palm Beach County abortion rights activist Mona Reis on Friday will get to ask a judge to let her vote in person after the election canvassing board last week rejected her absentee ballot because the three officials didn’t believe the signature on it was hers.

The emergency hearing, that could impact dozens of voters who had their absentee ballots thrown out because of bad signatures, was scheduled shortly after Reis on Wednesday sued Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher in Palm Beach County Circuit Court.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
