Case Summary

NOTE: This case is being tracked in close to real time by the Stanford/MIT Healthy Elections Project. So for information, see their tracker.

According to their summary as of October 18, 2020,

Republican Party brought suit challenging Illinois' law SB 1863 which mails a mail-in ballot to every voter who voted in elections in the past 2 years. Plaintiffs allege lead to fraudulent votes being counted, ballots being collected by partisan political operatives who will not turn them in (voter disenfranchisement), and violate voting secrecy.
