Priorities USA Foundation Statement on Victory in the Iowa Supreme Court
Washington, DC — In response to the Iowa Supreme Court affirming the vast majority of an injunction against suppressive portions of Iowa’s recent voting law, HF 516, Priorities USA Foundation Chairman Guy Cecil released the following statement:
“Today’s decision by the Iowa Supreme Court to affirm the injunction of many of the state’s recently implemented barriers to voting is a major victory for voting rights and a powerful affirmation of the principle that voting should be easy and accessible for all. Because of the Court’s ruling, in the upcoming fall elections Iowans will no longer be forced to produce an obscure voter ID number in order to cast an absentee ballot, nor will they be in danger of having their ballot thrown out due to inaccurate signature matching.
The Priorities USA Foundation has been proud to support LULAC of Iowa and Taylor Blair in this lawsuit, and as the case heads to a full trial in the months ahead we are confident that the court will continue to stand up for the voting rights of every Iowan.”
