If the election law here stated that you had to cast your ballot while standing on one leg, and every voter in fact cast their ballot with one foot in the air, the losing candidate could opt to bring a court action intended to throw all of the ballots on the grounds that the voters were standing on their foot, not their leg.
In other words, no matter how obvious either the law itself or the accepted interpretation is for the bystander, anybody can bring a court action against anyone or anything for any reason.
That's because we're guaranteed our day in court, and since the only way to determine if someone's suit is too stupid for court is to actually have it heard in court, there's really very little anyone can do except sit back and laugh.
I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

The ghost of Jack Kevorkian for President's Physician: 2016
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
