Voting-Rights Lawsuits Explode as 2020 Election Kicks Into High Gear
By Bianca Bruno

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University found voting rights filings for the last six months have far surpassed the number of similar lawsuits filed during the same time leading up to the 2016 presidential election. During the last six months, 155 voting rights lawsuits have been filed in courts across the country compared with 85 such cases during the same time in 2016. Compared to 47 voting rights suits filed during the lead-up to the 2018 election, this year’s pace of filings is more than three times greater, according to TRAC. The last six months have seen the highest amount of voting rights lawsuits since TRAC began tracking federal civil litigation in October 2007
