Plaintiff Spotlight: Michael Mennella

Earlier this year, we filed a lawsuit against the Delaware Department of Elections over the state’s new early and mail voting law. This new law conflicts with Delaware’s Constitution. Meet our client, Michael Mennella.

Michael has been an inspector of elections in Delaware for the last five years. He took an oath to obey voting laws. A violation of that oath could result in a fine or even prison time.

Now, he and other Delaware election workers are forced to choose to either follow the new law or the Constitution.

Election workers deserve an answer from the court on the conflict between the voting law and the Constitution. In an interview to Fox News, Mennella said several other election workers are concerned, “but some of them are worried about retaliation or loss of their jobs.”

Mennella and all Delaware election workers deserve this issue to be resolved before the next election!
