Voting and Elections

Recent voting cases and actions

In 2021, President Biden issued an Executive Order Promoting Access to Voting which directed federal agencies to consider ways to increase access to democracy and develop strategic plans to achieve those goals. Campaign Legal Center wrote to several agencies encouraging them to deliver on the Executive Order’s directives and identifying ways they can help expand access to the ballot box.

Campaign Legal Center is urging the Supreme Court to review and put an end to Mississippi’s racially discriminatory disenfranchisement system. It is an extreme outlier and a relic of Jim Crow that continues to serve the purpose for which it was enacted: to prevent Black citizens from voting.

The 2024 presidential election is likely to be one of the most contentious ever. In advance of the 2024 election and to protect the will of the people, Congress must update the Electoral Count Act (ECA) of 1887, an outdated law that provides the primary legal framework for casting and counting Electoral College votes in presidential elections.

The ECA has not been updated since it was first enacted over 130 years ago. During the 2020 presidential election, bad actors exploited archaic language and ambiguities in the ECA to try to overturn the election results. This plan included attempts by partisan politicians to overrule the voters and throw out states’ certified presidential election results.
