Iowa Voter Suppression Bill

March 9, 2021

Lawsuit filed on behalf of the League of United Latin American Citizens of Iowa challenging provisions of an Iowa voter suppression bill. The case claims that the bill’s voting restrictions—including shortening the absentee voting period, reducing the number of days a voter can request and return an absentee ballot, shortening the time polls are open on Election Day and more—create an undue burden on the fundamental right to vote in violation of the Iowa Constitution.
