South Carolina COVID-19 Election Relief (In-person Voting)
Bailey v. Andino
Lawsuit filed on behalf of individual voters, the South Carolina Democratic Party and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) against South Carolina asking the court to allow those practicing social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic to qualify for absentee voting in the state’s June 2020 primary election. Shortly after the case was argued before the South Carolina Supreme Court, the state’s lawmakers approved a short-term bill allowing all South Carolina voters to request a vote by mail absentee ballot for the June primary.
