Attorney asks court to delay ballot printing in Mitchell residency case (access required)

The attorney for a Republican lawmaker is asking a judge to bar two counties from printing ballots until residency questions surrounding the man who beat him in last month’s election are settled.

But elections officials say the early deadline for printing fewer than 250 ballots for military and overseas voters makes that impossible, and could mean that Darin Mitchell’s name appears on the ballots for the district’s other 94,000 voters that will be printed later this month – even if a judge rules that he is ineligible to hold office.
