Northampton County GOP Sues for Voter Access

The chairman of Northampton County's Republicans says an Easton polling place is denying his party information.

Update, 6 p.m: County Registrar Dee Rumsey says she has instructed the judge of elections to release the names. 

The Northampton County Republican Committee was headed to court Tuesday afternoon to get access to voting information from an Easton polling place.

Robert Kerr, the party's local chairman, told Patch the move was prompted by a judge of elections in Easton's ninth ward refusing to allow party "strikers" to have access to voter information.

Strikers are at polling places to tell whether or not registered voters from the party voted or not. 

"This happens all the time at polls in real time," Kerr said, but added that wasn't the case today in Easton. "After five hours, they hadn't given them one name."

Northampton County Election officials were not immediately available for comment.
