Conyers May Not Qualify for Primary Ballot

An attempt to get Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) "kicked off the August ballot is focusing on whether backdated voter registrations of two of his petition collectors invalidates their more than 300 collected signatures," the Detroit News reports.

"The official review of Conyers' petition signatures by the Wayne County Clerk's Office found 1,193 of the 2,000 signatures he submitted are from valid registered voters in the district. By law, the Detroit Democrat needs 1,000 signatures to make the Aug. 5 primary ballot -- meaning a loss of 194 or more signatures would disqualify him."
