Illinois Vote by Mail Intervention

August 25, 2020

Lawsuit filed by the Cook County Republican Party challenging Illinois legislation that allows more people to vote by mail, expands early voting hours, improves the signature verification process and makes Election Day a state holiday. The DCCC successfully intervened in the case to protect the expansion of voting opportunities during the COVID-19 pandemic. After the district court denied their motion for a preliminary injunction, the plaintiff voluntarily dismissed the case.
