Trump Campaign Successfully Sues To Invalidate 100,000 Mail-In Ballot Requests


The Trump campaign has successfully sued to invalidate over 100,000 mail-in ballot requests which were shipped to voters with all relevant information required to vote already printed on the ballots: date of birth, voting ID numbers, and more.

According to The Intercept:

“More than 100,000 absentee ballot requests have already been invalidated in several Iowa counties. In late August, judges ordered two Iowa counties to invalidate at least 64,000 ballot requests, siding with a challenge brought by President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign and the GOP, which have been filing similar lawsuits nationwide. About 50,000 voters in Linn County and at least 14,000 in Woodbury will be informed that their absentee-ballot requests won’t count and that anyone who still wants to vote by mail in November will have to send in a new form in order to receive their ballot. In a separate case in Johnson County, home to the University of Iowa, more than 92,000 ballot request forms were voided.”
The article continues, noting how “Democratic wins for the presidency and the Senate could hinge on an absentee-ballot snafu affecting tens of thousands of voters.”
