The National Redistricting Foundation is supporting plaintiffs in Vote Forward v. DeJoy, a challenge to a set of policy changes at the U.S. Postal Service that unlawfully infringe on the right to vote in this year’s elections. The lawsuit brings claims focusing on: (1) the delay in the delivery of mail ballots caused by the policy changes, which will place unconstitutional burdens on the right to vote during the ongoing pandemic; and (2) the Postmaster General’s failure to seek approval from the Postal Regulatory Commission, as required by law, before unilaterally implementing policy changes that have a significant nationwide impact.
