Bellows on Thursday removed Trump from the 2024 primary ballot in Maine, referring to a section of the constitution that bars those who had sworn an oath to the Constitution from holding office if they have engaged in insurrection. The case stems from Trump’s actions before and during the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

In three other states, Colorado, Minnesota and Michigan, courts have ruled on whether Trump is eligible to run; only Colorado ruled against. In California, the secretary of state certified Trump’s name Thursday, despite a request from the state’s lieutenant governor to consider excluding him on constitutional grounds.

Bellows cited the Colorado decision in reaching her conclusion that the Jan. 6 attack “was violent enough, potent enough, and long enough to constitute an insurrection.”

Under Maine state law, the secretary of state is responsible for preparing ballots for a presidential primary election and must hear and decide on challenges to the legality of nomination petitions.

Three challenges were filed by Maine voters, by a Dec. 8 cutoff date, to Trump’s nomination petition for the Republican primary ahead of the 2024 election. Bellows held an eight-hour-long, live-streamed hearing on those challenges Dec. 15 before making her ruling.
