4th Circuit Affirms Right Under NVRA for Public Access to Completed Voter Registration Materials

Project Vote v. Long: “The question here is whether Section 8(i)(1) of the National Voter Registration Act (“NVRA”), which requires public disclosure of “all records concerning the implementation of programs and activities conducted for the purpose of ensuring the accuracy and currency of official lists of eligible voters,” 42 U.S.C. § 1973gg-6(i)(1), applies to completed voter registration applications. The district court concluded that Section 8(i)(1) does apply to such applications and held that defendants—Virginia election officials—had violated the NVRA by refusing to disclose the completed applications with voters’ Social Security numbers redacted. Because the district court correctly interpreted Section 8(i)(1), we now affirm the judgment.”

It’s not every day that a Project Vote victory gets praised by Christian Adams.
