Republican primary rules lead to lawsuit

The Republican primary for the House of Delegates 96th District was close, Sheila Noll lost to Brenda Pogge by 23 votes, and Noll alleges that improper enforcement of voting rules cost her the win in the June 9 balloting. According to Noll, the primary rules were supposed to exclude voters who had voted recently in a Democratic primary. She alleges that the rule was enforced in York County, but not in James City County. In this earlier letter to the editor, Republican candidate for Commonwealth's Attorney Richard Hill implored Noll to support Pogge.
