NYCLU’s Opposition to Partisan Lawsuit Attacking Absentee Voting

The New York Civil Liberties Union filed a motion to intervene as defendants in a lawsuit brought by Republican and Conservative Party leaders challenging the state’s laws governing who is eligible for an absentee ballot in New York and how they are canvassed.

The lawsuit, filed last week in state Supreme Court in Saratoga County, challenges a 2022 law that expedites absentee ballot canvassing, and it seeks to throw out another recent law allowing voters who fear contracting COVID-19 to send in absentee ballots. In its motion, the NYCLU asks the court to dismiss the lawsuit in its entirety.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
