Voting Rights Cases and Actions
Campaign Legal Center and co-counsel filed a lawsuit on behalf of several national and Arizona-based organizations alleging that Arizona’s new anti-voter law — H.B. 2492 — imposes severe, arbitrary and discriminatory burdens on Arizona voters that undermine their freedom to vote and violate federal law.
Campaign Legal Center (CLC) filed a lawsuit against the Alabama Secretary of State on behalf of Greater Birmingham Ministries (GBM) to seek public records related to lists of purged voters, as well as Alabamians denied the right to vote due to felony convictions under the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).
Campaign Legal Center (CLC), ACLU Texas, MALDEF, Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and DĒMOS asked a district court to order Secretary of State John B. Scott to produce records responsive to their August and October 2021 records requests seeking information about the state’s new voter purge program.
State lawmakers are proposing a record number of anti-voter bills in state legislatures across the country, disproportionately targeting marginalized communities.. CLC is tracking these legislative attacks and fighting back. We've filed suit in states like Georgia and Kansas against new barriers that make it harder for voters to apply to vote by mail.
Most states restore the right to vote to people after they complete their sentences. In fact, up to 17 million Americans with past convictions can vote right now - they just don't know it because felony disenfranchisement laws in every state can be confusing. CLC launched a website, RestoreYourVote.org, and an on-the-ground campaign to help people with past convictions in all 50 states know their rights.
CLC and partner voting rights advocacy groups urged Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to institute a series of key reforms to make voting in the January 2021 runoff elections safer during the pandemic.
