RNC has filed 73 cases related to elections in 20 states: Election cycle with the “most litigation”

In 20 states during the 2022 midterm election cycle, the Republican National Committee (RNC) has filed 73 lawsuits related to election integrity issues, up from 40 lawsuits in 2020 that have already helped the GOP win elections in key states this year.

The range of the legal issues ranges from the freedom of poll watchers to monitor the vote-counting process to the illegitimate counting of absentee ballots with incorrect signatures.

According to an RNC official, this aggressive legal strategy is an attempt to fulfill RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel’s aim of making this cycle the RNC’s “most litigious.” The plan calls for both offensive legal efforts, like suing Democratic secretaries of state and opposing Democrat-friendly election laws, and defensive measures, including getting involved in legal proceedings initiated by the Biden administration in Republican states.

The plan was developed two years after a cycle that led some Republicans to call for greater control over state election processes and a presidential election outcome that spurred the former president of the United States to pursue numerous lawsuits. One GOP faction applauded the move to pursue aggressive legal action to ensure that states are not permitted to enact election laws that go beyond what is permitted under state law.

According to Michael Bars, executive director of the Election Transparency Initiative, “After the failings of the last election, a proactive and preemptive legal strategy is necessary to the election integrity voters demand in 2022, 2024, and beyond.” He continued by saying that during the past two years, “important strides” had been made to “restore voters’ faith in fair and safe elections.”

According to RNC spokesperson Gates McGavick, the lawsuits are the result of a “multimillion-dollar investment into developing an election integrity operations infrastructure that draws on its legal, political, data, and communications resources.”

For instance, the RNC filed lawsuits in Vermont and New York to invalidate voting legislation that would permit non-citizens to cast ballots. The law that would have added at least 900,000 non-citizens to voter rolls was successfully challenged in the New York State Supreme Court in June.

On October 16, the RNC filed a lawsuit after Pennsylvania announced it will count undelivered absentee ballots in defiance of state law and a Supreme Court rule.

In an effort to ensure that poll workers fairly represent both political parties, the RNC also won two legal battles last month. As a result, Nevada and Arizona were required to provide poll worker statistics.

And just last week, the RNC triumphed in a legal battle against Michigan’s Democrat secretary of state Jocelyn Benson, who placed unlawful limits on poll challengers—those chosen to contest voters’ eligibility.

Jocelyn Benson not only ignored Michigan election law when she issued this guidance, she also infringed upon the rights of political parties and poll challengers to fully ensure transparency and promote confidence that Michigan elections are run fairly and in accordance with the law, McDaniel said in a statement.
