Democrats Seek Rejection of GOP Election Integrity Suits in Nevada, Michigan

Lawyers representing the Democratic National Committee say the complaints alleging faulty voter roll cleanup are purely political theater.

Democrats are looking to dismiss election integrity suits filed in Michigan and Nevada by the Republican National Committee (RNC).

On May 6, lawyers representing the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Biden For President filed three amicus briefs across multiple jurisdictions “outlining Republicans’ shoddy legal arguments and calling out these efforts for what they really are: press releases thinly disguised as legal papers, intended to foster distrust about the election.”

“In the last two months, the RNC has filed baseless lawsuits against secretaries of state in Michigan and Nevada, trying to kick eligible voters off the voter rolls and take down guidance around how clerks conduct signature matching for mail voting ballots,” Michael Tyler, Biden-Harris 2024 communications director, and DNC Communications Director Rosemary Boeglin said in an open letter addressed to the press.

“These lawsuits are completely meritless and designed only to try to undermine our democracy and voters’ confidence in it.”

In its brief filed in support of Nevada Secretary of State Francisco Aguilar’s motion to dismiss a pending case before the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada, the DNC called the lawsuit “little more than political theatre.”

In a five-point argumentation, the brief says the Republican challenge to various state election laws focusing on the National Voter Registration Act is flawed. It contends that the RNC’s legal team uses bad logic and incomparable data to purge voter rolls.

“Nevada’s and Michigan’s voter rolls are inaccurate—full stop,” Claire Zunk, the RNC’s communications director for election integrity, told The Epoch Times.

“It speaks volumes that Democrats are laser-focused on stopping voter roll cleanup instead of solving any of the crises that have erupted on their watch.”

In March, the RNC filed a similar suit against Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat. The Michigan case alleges that Ms. Benson is not meeting the state’s federally mandated duty of maintaining an accurate and current voter registration roll for federal elections.

The RNC’s legal analysis says that 76 of Michigan’s 83 counties maintain illegally inflated voter rolls.

The May 6 amicus brief filed in Nevada was signed by Daniel Stewart of Denver-based law firm Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck LLP and two lawyers with Perkins Coie LLP of Seattle.

The DNC did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Epoch Times.

Other RNC Election Lawsuits

Under the leadership of Chairman Michael Whatley and Co-Chair Lara Trump, the RNC is prioritizing election integrity ahead of the 2024 general election. So far, the RNC is involved in 83 active lawsuits across 25 different states.

In April, the RNC said it planned to employ more than 100,000 election integrity workers on and before Election Day.

On May 3, the RNC, along with Donald J. Trump For President 2024 Inc. and a Nevada Republican, Donald Szymanski, filed a three-count complaint against Mr. Aguilar and other Nevada authorities, seeking to limit the Silver State’s ability to count mail-in ballots up to four business days after Election Day. The complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada.

In the complaint, the Republicans say Nevada’s laws “effectively [extend] Nevada’s federal election past the Election Day established by Congress.”

This “violates the rights of candidates, campaigns, and voters.”

On April 10, the RNC announced its support for two formal complaints filed against the Wisconsin Elections Commission over election integrity concerns in the state’s two largest cities.

Those suits allege that election officials in Dane County and Milwaukee County violated state law by not scheduling the vast majority of Republican election inspectors submitted for the state’s primary, which was held on April 2.
