In the order, the court expresses its intention “to prepare for the possibility that actions pertaining to the election process may be filed during or after regular business hours and further intends to implement a fair and expeditious process by which election-related actions can be heard and adjudicated through the end of Election Day.”

The court encourages litigants to include the terms “Election-Related Action” in the caption of the pleading “to help assure the proper designation of their actions as election-related actions.” The court encourages litigants to file election-related actions electronically.
