Alliance for Retired Americans et al. v. Secretary of State et al. (Absentee ballots)

On September 30, 2020, in the matter of the Alliance for Retired Americans et al. vs. Matthew Dunlap et al., the Superior Court denied the motion brought by the Alliance for Retired Americans, vote.org, and two individuals for a preliminary injunction regarding voter registration and the handling and counting of absentee ballots "in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and amid questions as to the ability of the United States Postal Service to deliver absentee ballots in a timely fashion." The Alliance for Retired Americans, vote.org, and the two individuals have appealed and indicated that they will be moving to expedite the appeal. See all public court documents.
