League of United Latin American Citizens v. Iowa Secretary of State
State constitutional challenge, on behalf of LULAC of Iowa and a college-aged voter, to a 2017 Iowa law that instituted a voter identification requirement for in-person voting starting in 2019. In 2018, the trial court granted our motion for temporary injunction and enjoined the enforcement of the absentee ballot-related restrictions during the 2018 general election. The court then ruled in our favor, prohibiting the State from rejecting absentee applications and ballots based on a purported signature mismatch and also prohibiting the State from instructing voters that they were “required” to include an identification number on absentee ballot requests. The court further ordered the State to issue all voters a free voter identification card upon request.
