The Massachusetts State Ballot Law Commission rejected a challenge to remove Donald Trump from the 2024 ballot due to his role in the Capitol riot, citing procedural reasons.

Trump’s lawyers argued for dismissal, and the commission ruled that it didn’t have jurisdiction over objections to candidates.

This decision is a victory for Trump, who faces similar challenges in other states.

“There is nothing in the case law or the statutes that the commission is required to follow that says qualification to be on a ballot is a precondition to appear on the ballot,” Trump attorney Marc Salinas said.

Colorado and Maine have already removed him from the ballot, pending a Supreme Court appeal, and Massachusetts’s decision can be appealed in state courts.

“We believe that Mr. Trump’s candidacy for this office and placement on the Massachusetts ballot violates the Constitution, so we are challenging the constitutionality,” attorney Shannon Liss-Riordan said.

“It is the job of this commission to hear objections to the legality of placement of candidates on the ballot.”
