Amicus Brief filed in Ohio 5-Day Window Suit
An amicus curiae brief was filed today with the Ohio Supreme Court by 1Matters, the ACLU, and others, in support of the Ohio Secretary of State in State ex rel. Colvin v. Brunner. The brief supports the position of Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner that Ohio law provides for a five-day window (30-35 days before the election) within which qualified voters may simultaneously register and receive an absentee ballot. EL@M Associate Director Daniel Tokaji is one of the attorneys who filed the brief on behalf of the amicus curiae.
