Colorado Voter Purge (PILF)
Public Interest Legal Foundation v. Griswold
Lawsuit filed by a conservative legal group, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), against Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold (D) for allegedly violating the Public Disclosure Provision of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA). The plaintiff alleges that there are instances of people voting in the name of deceased individuals and that the secretary has not maintained the “deceased voter lists received from ERIC [a national database of 33 states and Washington, D.C. used to maintain voter rolls]” in violation of the NVRA. The plaintiff requests that the Colorado secretary of state provide PILF with voter list maintenance records and asks the court to declare that the secretary is violating the NVRA for denying the plaintiff’s request for the records. Litigation is ongoing.
