The list of COVID-19 election cases

Updated as of July 2: the post below lists 130 cases in 39 states and DC.

Hi, all. Justin here. A few months ago, I set out to try to follow a few lawsuits brought over election practices in light of COVID-19, to see if I could spot some patterns (like Rick). Then I kept adding to my working list. And I eventually got to a place where I’ve tracked quite a lot of them. (And I’m 100% sure I’m missing some.)

As a resource for others looking for trends, I’ll try to keep this post periodically updated, as new cases come in and old ones get resolved. As anyone who’s tried this knows, it can be particularly difficult to track cases in state court — so if you know of a case (or a dispositive result) not captured or linked on this list, please just let me know and I’ll happily add.

The post below delineates the state, the court, a shorthand indication of the issue(s) involved, and the date (and where I can, link) for decisions.

[Note: this list does not purport to be a list of all current litigation over election issues. There was plenty of litigation before COVID-19 (some of which is still unresolved — indeed, some of which has been unresolved for years), and there have been some recent cases that don’t involve the pandemic. Election Law @ Moritz has continuing updates of the major election cases, COVID-19 and not; the Michigan Civil Rights Litigation Clearinghouse has continuing updates of the major COVID-19 cases, election and not. This list tries to capture all of the COVID-19 election cases, “major” and not. Also, thanks to Eda Harotounian, Erika De La Torre, Richard Winger, and several readers for the assist on some of the details below.]
