Rensselaer County Accused Of Voter Intimidation by Advocacy Groups

Demos and Protect Democracy  have filed a federal complaint against Rensselaer County NY officials, who have pledged to turn over all motor voter registration data to ICE. In addition to pleading claims under Section 11(b) of the Voting Rights Act and the 1st and 14th Amendments, the plaintiffs sent a notice letter regarding NVRA violations. The notice letter is a follow up to an initial letter  sent last week after the county announced its new policy.

Plaintiff groups include the New York Immigration Coalition, Community Voices Heard, Common Cause New York, and Citizen Action of New York. League of Women Voters US and NY joined for the notice letter.
