The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia granted Campaign Legal Center's (CLC) motion requiring DOJ to conduct an adequate search for documents about the citizenship question and requiring DOJ to disclose drafts of the letter requesting the citizenship question.
CLC submitted this request under the Freedom of Information Act to the U.S. Census Bureau. The request seeks documents related to the Census Bureau’s current attempt to obtain state government records related to driver licenses. The Bureau intends to use these state records to help compile data on how many voting-age U.S. citizens live on each census block. However, CLC is concerned about this plan because records on citizenship status held by state driver-license agencies are often outdated and inaccurate. CLC therefore filed this FOIA request to investigate why the Bureau wants driver-license records, how expansive the Bureau’s request for these records is, and what decisions the Bureau has made about the role these records will play in compiling citizenship data.
After CLC and partners filed a friend-of-the-court brief in this case, the Washington Supreme Court issued an opinion interpreting the Washington constitution's uniformity provisions in a way that underscores the constitutionality of the Washington Voting Rights Act.
