On May 28, 2924, eight states (WV, AR, IN, LA, MS, MT, NH, and TN) filed a suit opposing an executive order to engage voters directly while complying with “relevant state laws”:

  1. distributing voter registration and vote-by-mail ballot application forms, and providing access to applicable state online systems for individuals who can take advantage of those systems;
  2. assisting applicants in completing voter registration and vote-by-mail ballot application forms;
  3. soliciting and facilitating approved, nonpartisan third party organizations and state officials to provide voter registration services on agency premises. 

In WY, this law has a particular impact on rural and tribal voters.  Their objection is that this federal law “usurps a state’s authority to run its own elections.
