3 more W&M students sue for registration

The Virginia chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has filed federal lawsuits on behalf of three more students at the College of William and Mary, trying to win them the right to register to vote in Williamsburg. ...

All four students started campaigns this winter to run for three City Council seats in a May 4 election. They have run into problems meeting the residency requirements for registering to vote in the city, where only residents can run for the City Council. ...

The cases are scheduled for a hearing at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday before U.S. District Judge Raymond A. Jackson in Norfolk. Tuesday is also the deadline for council candidates to register as voters and turn in petitions necessary to be on the ballot. -- Three more William & Mary students sue for voting rights (AP)
