|Nicols said Monday that he is trying to intervene in this case because he is not confident that state officials will do what is best for the voters of the state.
"I think the pressure is on the state to act quickly, and I think that acting quickly now could be disastrous," he said.
Nicols, who has been an elections commissioner for 21 years, said he and DeWitt are attempting to intervene in this case as voters rather than as commissioners. He added that he discussed his decision with Otsego Countys Republican elections commissioner, Charlotte Koniuto.
