RI: Independent Challenges Mechanics of Voting Machine, "Party Levers"

From the Providence Journal:
Joseph Lusi, an independent candidate for governor, has filed suit in U.S. District Court to remove the master levers from the November ballot. . . . Lusi alleges that the levers, which he calls “party levers,” violate protections contained in the First and Fourteenth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution. The levers allow voters to check one box on the ballot and vote for an entire slate of party candidates.
