If this ruling stands, Democratic challenger Vop Osili is the winner of the election and will become Indiana’s Secretary of State.
The Indiana Democratic Party – which filed the complaint against White – appealed the Commission’s ruling in Marion Circuit Court Thursday.
Commission chairman Tom Wheeler says he feels like their hands are tied because of the wording of voter registration laws.
If White is ruled ineligible, Democrat Vop Osili, the runner-up in the 2010 Secretary of State election, could take office.
The Secretary of State took the stand at an Indiana Recount Commission hearing Tuesday as the commission decides whether he was eligible to run for office.
The Court has agreed to hear White's petition this morning, and the Recount Commission will hear White's testimony tomorrow.
The runner-up to Charlie White for Secretary of State and the Indiana Democratic Party Chair will testify at White's eligibility hearing.
A judge is setting a deadline to settle whether Secretary of State Charlie White is eligible to hold the office.
