Associated Press 3-2-20

CHICAGO (AP) Voter advocacy groups are suing the Illinois Secretary of State’s office and election officials over Illinois’ problem-plagued automatic voter registration system. They allege multiple violations of voter laws in its delayed rollout, including a lack of access for those with limited English. The federal lawsuit says the “promise of voter modernization and inclusivity” has gone unfulfilled and the office has ignored calls for assistance and transparency. Secretary of State Jesse White’s spokesman has declined comment. Illinois’ automatic voter registration system has had multiple other problems including mistakenly registering non-U.S. citizens to vote.
