Plaintiffs, Donald Gill, John M. Carlevale Sr., and Robert F. Plante, have appealed a district court judgment declaring constitutional certain provisions of the Rhode Island election laws. Gill v. Rhode Island, 933 F.Supp. 151 (D.R.I.1996). On appeal, appellants have presented no cogent argument supported by legal authority to challenge the court's ruling and we, therefore, have no basis on which to find any error.
