A judge on Thursday granted the Trump campaign’s appeal to block 50,000 absentee ballot requests in an Iowa county.
Judge Ian Thornhill issued a temporary injunction invalidating 50,000 requests in Linn County, siding with the campaign that the county elections commissioner overstepped the process by prefiling them with voters’ personal information, the Des Moines Register reported.
The campaign previously filed lawsuits against Linn and two other counties, claiming their attempts to send absentee ballots with prefilled information such as voting pin or driver’s license numbers violate a state directive mandating all ballots should be blank upon arrival.
The injunction orders Linn County Auditor Joel Miller to contact voters who received the absentee ballots to inform them that the forms should not have been prefilled with their information and cannot be processed.
