Let’s get right to this week’s runners-up.
First up, a Willkie Farr & Gallagher litigation team led by partner Rich Mancino worked with pro bono partner the Texas Civil Rights Project to win an injunction barring Texas’s use of signature-matching procedures for mail-in ballots that have historically disenfranchised thousands of voters each election cycle. U.S. District Chief Judge Orlando Garcia wrote last week that the current process state election officials use violates Texas voters’ constitutional rights since it does not provide a method for a voter to fix perceived signature issues. Election officials will be required to provide a voter with a pre-rejection notice and “a meaningful opportunity to cure his or her ballot’s rejection” under the order.
