|Voting for America, Project Vote et al v. Steen et al|
The lawsuit (formerly Voting for America v. Andrade) challenges the Texas Volunteer Deputy Registrar statute that creates several onerous restrictions and criminal liability against anyone who collects voter registration cards. The lawsuit challenges the following restrictions: the prohibition on terminating a canvasser if the termination is based on the canvasser's inability to collect applications; the requirement that canvassers be eligible to vote in Texas; the prohibition on collecting an application from a person who does not reside in the county where the canvasser is a deputy registrar; training requirements without a mandate that the county conduct such trainings; the requirement for applications to be personally delivered, not mailed; and the ability of registrars to terminate a deputy's appointment for turning in incomplete applications without any safeguards or guidance for canvassers who use their best efforts.
