INDIANA (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - U.S. Senator Richard Lugar's attorneys are now suing to overturn last week's ruling by the Marion County elections board that he can no longer vote in Indiana.

The board determined Lugar was illegally registered since he lists an address he has not lived in for 35 years.

Lugar's attorneys contend that per the Constitution "no person shall be deemed to have lost his residence in the state by reason of absence".
