Trump Legal Team Blocks Dem Efforts To Mail 70,000 Auto-Filled Ballots In Iowa

Start

The Trump campaign legal team successfully invalidated nearly 70,000 mail-in ballot requests that were delivered to Iowans already filled out with the necessary information required to vote.

According to the Associated Press:

“The court rejected a Democratic challenge that argued the directive issued by Republican Secretary of State Paul Pate was unconstitutional. Pate instructed county elections commissioners in July that all absentee ballot request forms they mailed to voters must be blank in order to ensure uniformity statewide. Auditors in three counties defied Pate’s guidance and mailed forms to thousands of voters with their names, addresses, dates of birth and voter pin numbers already filled in. The Trump campaign and GOP groups filed lawsuits to invalidate those forms, saying auditors overstepped their authority. Two judges in three separate cases agreed, invalidating about 70,000 applications that had been returned by voters and issuing injunctions blocking the counties from processing any others. Affected individuals had to fill out new blank applications to request absentee ballots or vote another way.”
