Vote.org v. Callanen

Lawsuit filed on behalf of Vote.org against multiple Texas counties challenging the state’s “wet signature” law that requires individuals who submit their registration applications electronically or through fax to also provide a copy of their application with his or her original signature — meaning signed with pen on paper. The complaint argues that this law unduly burdens the right to vote and targets voting advocacy groups such as Vote.org in violation of the First and 14th Amendments and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and asks the court to prohibit its enforcement.
