RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- A federal judge has struck down Nevada's "none of the above" ballot choice, deeming it unconstitutional.

U.S. District Judge Robert C. Jones ruled this morning that because the "none of the above" option can never win, even if it gets the most votes, it essentially makes those votes not count.

A lawsuit backed by the Republican National Committee argued the option available for statewide races in Nevada since 1976 disenfranchises voters.

Nevada is the only state to offer this option.

Since they took this choice away from the voters they will just skip that block on their ballot anyway!! I guess the rebumblicans will try anything to try and get a vote!!
