True the Vote, the citizens initiative pursuing “free and fair elections for all Americans,” and 13 other plaintiffs have filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Mississippi Secretary of State and the Republican Party of Mississippi over the June 24 primary election runoff in which Sen.

…True the Vote’s lawsuit seeks to disable the redaction requirement and force the ballot boxes open based on federal law, whether the county has certified or not. It consists of three counts:

  • Count Two: Individual Plaintiffs Allege a Violation of NVRA Based on Conflict with State Laws. Plaintiffs seek a declaration that the NVRA preempts any state requirement calling for public election information to be redacted at the cost of the requestor.
  • Count Three: Individual Plaintiffs Allege an Equal Protection Violation. Discovering potential instances of “double-voting” between Democratic and Republican primaries are unlawful dilutions of individual votes…

…“My hat is off to Sen. Cochran for being as desperate as he was, to actually go out, and up front, go out and ask for these votes,” U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga, told Politico. “Those votes were delivered, and I’m hopeful he will be responsible and responsive to the voters that pushed him over the top.”..
