Judge denies ACLU request to move Dodge City polling site

Source: ABC-Topeka

UPDATE: A federal judge has DENIED the request to move voting in Dodge City back to the Civic Center. It will REMAIN at the Expo Center, a mile outside of town. The ACLU has said it would not appeal a ruling like this.

Concern raised about double voting in Dodge City polling place lawsuit

The county is raising an issue because they use paper poll books instead of votesafe or electronic poll books. I think that this argument is bogus https://www.kansascity.com/news/politics-government/election/article220942645.html
Caskey’s testimony marked the first time the possibility of voter fraud has been invoked as a possible reason not to open a second polling location in Dodge City.

Kansas law requires each voter to be assigned to a specific polling location, Caskey said. When voters go to the location, their name is checked against a list of voters assigned to that location.

But if a second location is opened containing the same list of registered voters, poll workers will have no way of knowing in real time whether an individual has already voted at the other site....

Johnson dismissed Cox’s complaints about the hurdles to opening a second site.

“This is a problem created and exacerbated by the defendant’s conduct over the past couple months,” Johnson said.

The county clerk is a racist who does not want Latino voters to vote. Kobach wants to suppress these voters

Fed. Dist. Court Rejects New Relief in North Dakota Residential Address for voting case

i was expecting this ruling given the timing https://electionlawblog.org/?p=101873

The order is here and is not a surprise given the timing:

The federal courts are unanimous in their judgment that it is highly important to preserve the status quo when elections are fast approaching. See Purcell v. Gonzalez, 549 U.S. 1, 4-5 (2006); Williams v. Rhodes, 393 U.S. 23, 34-35 (1968); Veasey v. Perry, 769 F.3d 890, 892-95 (5th Cir. 2014). “Court orders affecting elections, especially conflicting orders, can themselves result in voter confusion and consequent incentive to remain away from the polls. As an election draws closer, that risk will increase.” Purcell, 549 U.S. at 4–5. In this case, early voting has already begun. Election day is less than one week away. The allegations in the complaint, the motion for a temporary restraining order, and the attached affidavits give this Court great cause for concern.

The allegations will require a detailed response from the Secretary of State as this case proceeds. The litany of problems identified in this new lawsuit were clearly predictable and certain to occur as the Court noted in its previous orders in Brakebill v. Jaeger.

However, a further injunction on the eve of the election will create as much confusion as it will alleviate, and is foreclosed by precedent which is hesitant to permit “eleventh-hour changes to election laws.” See Veasey, 769 F.3d at 895. The Court has carefully reviewed the entire record and finds the issuance of an emergency temporary restraining order unwarranted given the importance of avoiding further confusion and chaos on the eve of an election.
