McDaniel campaign drops suit

In the order of dismissal, the two parties agreed that Lee was “proper in her action” to not allow McDaniel’s representatives to examine both the ballot boxes and poll books simultaneously.

Furthermore, the order said if the ballot box and poll book materials where intermingled without proper supervision, it could “adversely affect the integrity of the election materials.”

It reaffirmed the Supreme Court’s ruling on July 17 that poll books are a “matter of public record” and in the “proper form” can be inspected by anyone upon request.
