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 15, 2020,
[Plaintiffs argue that the notarization/witness requirement for mail-in ballots leaves self-isolated, immunocomprimised citizens with an untenable choice between risking their health to vote and not voting at all. Plaintiffs ask for the court to grant injunctive and declaratory relief, ordering defendants not to enforce the witness requirement in the November 2020 election and to declare its application unconstitutionally burdensome on Plaintiffs' right to vote during the COVID-19 pandemic.]
