Learn about our latest voting rights victory in Pennsylvania.
Marc E. Elias🚨BREAKING: Pennsylvania Supreme Court rules that election officials are PROHIBITED from rejecting mail-in ballots based on signature comparison. Nor may a party "challenge based on signature analysis and comparisons."
It could prevent thousands of votes from being rejected, but Barrett being on the court might have swayed the decision in the other direction.
Marc E. EliasMore on yesterday's Supreme Court ruling:
"It will likely prevent hundreds to thousands of disproportionately Democratic ballots from being rejected for late arrival, a top reason mail-in ballots have been disqualified in primaries so far."
The state’s voter rolls have grown by nearly 2 million since the U.S. Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act in 2013, but polling locations have been cut by almost 10%, with Metro Atlanta hit particularly hard.
Marc E. EliasWe sued Georgia after long-lines in the primary. Here is more proof of why.
The long lines are happening not by accident but design. Voters must stand up to defend our system of government
Marc E. EliasBlaming voters for the long lines they endure ignores the massive, intentional disparity in resources between the more & less populous parts of the state. Ohio’s politicians have made voting far easier for Republicans and far more difficult for Democrats.
The judge ruled, however, that North Carolina absentee voters must still have a witness sign their ballots for them to be valid.
Marc E. EliasHeadline says it all: "A Judge Ruled North Carolina Can Extend Its Deadline To Count Mail-In Ballots, Despite The Trump Campaign’s Objections."
Another victory over GOP voter suppression.
