EFF Argues That Californians Can Have Secure Voting by November
Amicus Brief and White Paper Support Shelley's Plan for Secure, Accessible E-Voting
San Francisco, CA -- EFF today filed an amicus brief in Benavidez v. Shelley (case number 2:04-cv-03318-FMC-PJW), a suit brought by Riverside County and several disability rights groups against California Secretary of State Kevin Shelley. The suit seeks to delay Shelley's order, issued April 30, that every California voter have the option to cast a paper ballot in the November presidential election. In its brief, EFF, joined by VerifiedVoting.org, the California Voter Foundation and VotersUnite!, argues that the court should deny this request.
