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 September 1, 2020,

Plaintiffs brought suit requesting an injunction on the Auditor of Linn County's action, whereby absentee ballots were prepopulated before being mailed to every active registered voter, even though the Sec. of State's emergency election directive asked for blank ballots to be distributed. Plaintiffs claim this can cause voter fraud as there is no assurance that the forms were actually mailed by the voter listed on the ballot.
