Litigation Update from LWVUS

Kate Stewart  | Published on 6/25/2021

From Celina Stewart, Chief Counsel, Senior Director of Advocacy and Litigation of LWVUS: 

Here is a brief update on some of the biggest cases on the League’s legal docket:

  • The LWV of Georgia has joined a lawsuit against the state of Georgia to prevent enforcement of the state’s omnibus voter suppression bill that targets several important mechanisms increasingly used by voters of color, and which also threatens the League of Women Voters and our partners with fines for assisting voters with their absentee ballots.

  • The LWV of Arizona and LWVUS filed independent amicus briefs in support of the plaintiffs in Brnovich v. DNC, who are challenging two Arizona election policies that prohibit out-of-precinct voting and third-party ballot collection, disproportionately harming voters of color in the state.

  • Challenge New Jersey’s use of “the line” and other misleading features in its ballot design. These bracketing rules mislead and confuse New Jersey voters and also disproportionately harm voters and candidates of color.

With more than 360 new anti-voter bills introduced in state legislatures since the November elections, our legal team has never been busier. These lawsuits are a chance to not only stop these extreme voter suppression bills, but also to strengthen the case law upholding the right to vote as inviolable and inalienable.


But major cases like these take months of hard work, as well as significant resources. And so we are going to need the strongest support of our donors to deliver victories on behalf of voters.

If you would like to support these lawsuits, donate to LWVUS now.
