Iowa Democrats Sue Over Absentee Ballot Request Forms

DES MOINES, Iowa - The Iowa Democratic Party, along with national party committees are suing to allow the sending out of ballot request forms that include voter information.

Two Iowa judges sided with President Trump's Campaign last week that two counties (Linn and Woodbury) overstepped in sending out ballot request forms pre-filled with voters' personal information.

The Democratic lawsuit says Iowa Republican Secretary of State Paul Pate acted illegally in blocking county auditors from sending voters pre-filled ballot request forms earlier this summer.

Pate plans to send all voters blank absentee ballot request forms in the coming weeks for the November election.

The Democratic lawsuit is the latest of several court cases over how Iowans will vote in November. A hearing is set for September 9th over the Johnson County's auditors decision to send out pre-filled ballot request forms.
