American Civil Right Union files lawsuit against Starr County Election Administrator
Rafael Montalvo, a Starr County Election administrator, is being sued by the American Civil Rights Union for allegedly failing to maintain accurate voter polls.
According to the lawsuit, Montalvo allowed undocumented immigrants to vote, and counted the ballots that were issued to the deceased.
Montalvo told CBS 4 News he has followed the Texas state voter regulations, and the organization is basing the suit on inaccurate information.
ACRU claims that Starr County failed to follow Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act by allowing ineligible voters to cast a ballot in the last election.
Montalvo said he was transparent and provided confidential documentation that proved his innocence, but ACRU has refused to drop the suit.
He included that the organization has failed to provide evidence to back their allegations.
Duval County is also dealing with a lawsuit filed by ACRU over the same voter regulations issue.
Montalvo explained he has reason to believe ACRU is threatening the operation of their office because the county is prominently Democratic, and ACRU is mostly Republican.
