Justin here. I’m tracking the litigation over election issues related to COVID-19 … and the list of cases just hit 200. 202, actually.
The number in each state isn’t necessarily a good indication of the contentiousness of the issues: any individual case may be “big” or “small” — or a good case or a shoddy one — and some of these cases are essentially repeat claims of others. But overall, that’s still an awful lot of legal paper for mid-August.
These are just the cases I know of — I’m sure I’m missing some. State court cases are particularly difficult to track. I think that seven states have been spared so far (Delaware, Kansas, Nebraska, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, and Wyoming) … but if you know of a COVID-related election case I’m missing here, please let me know.
