When Americans vote it usually means one other thing. Americans suing. And this year is no different. Diana Simpson of IJ joins us, as she did on the eve of the 2020 election, to help summarize and scrutinize hot-off-the-press opinions on ballot access and voting rules for the election on November 8, 2022. We discuss cases in federal and state court involving laws in Pennsylvania, Nebraska, Nevada, Alaska, Georgia, and the town of Mason, Tennessee. Plus, we’re excited to announce the first appearance of Richard Nixon on the podcast.
