Colorado Voter Intimidation Challenge
CO MT WY State Area Conference of the NAACP v. U.S. Election Integrity Plan
Lawsuit filed on behalf of the Colorado Montana Wyoming State Area Conference of the NAACP, League of Women Voters of Colorado and Mi Familia Vota against the United States Election Integrity Plan (USEIP) challenging the group’s voter intimidation practices. The complaint alleges that USEIP uses public voter lists “to target and intimidate voters,” including by showing up at their houses, taking pictures of their residence, asking how they voted in the 2020 election and questioning them about fraudulent ballots. The plaintiffs argue that USEIP is engaging in voter intimidation by scheme of “deploying armed agents to knock on doors throughout the state of Colorado,” possibly dissuading voters from casting ballots in future elections in violation of Section 11(b) of the Voting Rights Act and the Ku Klux Klan Act. The lawsuit asks the federal court to immediately stop USEIP’s “door-to-door campaign of voter harassment.” Litigation is ongoing.
