Although Wake County’s press release may hail Sims’ many years running the Wake County elections, I am familiar with Gary Sims as one of the named defendants in the eponymous lawsuit Bernstein v. Sims. Sims is being sued over permanently banning Lynn Bernstein from the Wake BoE headquarters. Bernstein is an election integrity advocate and founder of Transparent Elections NC.
Although the case is still being litigated, Bernstein has won a preliminary injunction, allowing her to attend the Board of Election meetings held at the property.
