The League joined Common Cause and Project Vote on an amicus brief to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in the case of A. Phillip Randolph Inst. v. John Husted. The brief argues that Ohio's decision to remove voters from the rolls violated provisions in the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) and the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) that prohibit removal based on non-voting. The state used the failure to vote in two elections as the basis for the purge in question.
The League sent comments to the Census Bureau regarding the decision to continue using the “usual residence” rule. The rule counts incarcerated citizens at their prison addresses rather than their home addresses.
The League joined letters to the U.S. Senate and House urging them to deliver much needed federal aid to the community of Flint, Michigan in response to the devastating lead contamination its citizens continue to suffer.
