Challenge

Introduction

Challenge (O. Fr. chalonge, calenge, etc., from Lat. calumnia, originally meaning trickery, from calvi, to deceive, hence a false accusation, a “calumny”), originally a charge against a person or a claim to anything, a defiance. The term is now particularly used of an invitation to a trial of skill in any contest, or to a trial by combat as a vindication of personal honour (see Duel in this reference), and, in law, of the objection to the members of a jury allowed in a civil action or in a criminal trial (see Jury in this legal Encyclopedia). (1)

Challenge, Ground

From the book The Clergyman’s Hand-book of Law, about Challenge, Ground (2): The right of a person to vote at any meeting may be challenged. The proper time to challenge a voter is when he offers his vote. After his vote has been received it can not be thrown out on the ground that he was disqualified.263 A church election for which due notice has been given, that has been fairly conducted, and all the requirements of the statute or rules of the church complied with, is conclusive. Without due notice, all proceedings are void.
