The League of Women Voters of Tennessee sent a letter to the TN Secretary of State urging him to consider allowing voters who had been purged from the voter rolls to be allowed to vote by provisional ballot
The League joined 88 voting and civil rights group in urging state election officials to create plans to prevent voting discrimination in advance of the first presidential election in fifty years without a fully operable Voting Rights Act (VRA). Letters were sent to state elections officials in every state.
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 joined Project Vote and Common Cause on a brief in the case of A. Phillip Randolf Inst. v. Husted in 6th Circuit Appeals Court. The brief argues that methods used by the state of Ohio to remove voters based on their voting status from the voting rolls should be prohibited. Purging voters from the rolls because they didn’t vote in previous elections creates confusion for voters and is in direct violation of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) and the Help America Vote Act (HAVA).
