Appellate court denies McDonald appeal in Seneca elections case

The Fourth Department Appellate Division Court in Rochester has unanimously dismissed the appeal of a lower court ruling filed by Casey McDonald against the Seneca County Board of Elections.

The four-judge panel heard oral arguments Thursday morning and considered written briefs before issuing its decision later in the day.

McDonald, a Romulus resident, filed an order to show cause on April 18, seeking to overturn three rulings by Election Commissioners Carl Same and Tiffany Folk. The rulings denied McDonald’s objections to the designating petitions for multiple seats on the county Conservative Party Committee, denied his objections to the designating petitions of Lee Davidson of Lodi for member of the state Republican Party Committee from the 132nd Assembly District and invalidating his own petitions as a candidate for the seat being sought by Davidson.
