Kentucky Republican Candidate Sues to Obtain List of Voters who have Requested an Absentee Ballot

On April 3, Deborah Sheldon, a Republican running for State Senate in the May 20 primary, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court to strike down a 2013 law that says the list of voters who have requested an absentee ballot is not public information until after the primary or election is over. Sheldon says her campaign wants the list of registered Republicans who have requested an absentee ballot, so her campaign can send those voters campaign literature.

The list was public, until the 2013 legislature made it unavailable until the election is over. The state says the purpose for the 2013 law is because if candidates know who the absentee voters are before the election, they are likely to bribe those voters to vote a certain way. The lawsuit is Sheldon v Grimes, eastern district, 2:14cv-60.
