Minnesota Voter Assistance/Ballot Collection

July 21, 2020

Challenging a Minnesota law that, regardless of the language barriers or disabilities faced by a voter being assisted, limits the number of voters an individual may help (1) complete their in-person or absentee ballot and (2) submit their absentee ballots.  Specifically, a person may help no more than three voters mark their ballots. Similarly, a person may help no more than three voters return their absentee ballots. These laws especially impact Minnesota’s sizable language minority communities, including Hmong and Somali Americans, as well as Minnesotans with disabilities.
