Voter ID: Applewhite v. Commonwealth


Court Grants Plaintiffs’ Request and Orders Release of Data

Judge Simpson issued a decision ordering the Department of State and Department of Transportation to release data that will allow us to estimate the number of individuals who are currently without proper identification and would be disenfranchised by the voter ID law.

This favorable decision comes after denial of numerous prior requests. Along with our partners in this case, we will use this data as we prepare to litigate for a permanent injunction of the voter ID law at trial in July. You can read the Court’s Discovery Order here.
