Registered, yes; on the ballot, no

A College of William and Mary student who won the right to vote in Williamsburg but then was denied his bid to run for City Council lost his appeal to the city's Electoral Board on Friday. ...

Assistant Registrar David Andrews ... said four of Lowe's petitions, containing a total of 28 signatures, could not be considered because the people who circulated them were not registered to vote in the city or eligible to be registered in the city as required by state law.

The signatures were collected by William and Mary students Zayd Khoury and Serene Maria Alami. Khoury is registered to vote in James City County, while Alami's bid to register to vote in Williamsburg was denied earlier this month. Alami, who also wants to run for City Council, plans to appeal the ruling to the Virginia Supreme Court. -- Electoral board denies W&M student's appeal (AP)
