First, a reminder about June’s court ruling:
On June 29, 2023 an Iowa court ruled that Iowa’s English-only law does not apply to voting materials and dissolved the previous injunction that prohibited the Iowa secretary of state from providing non-English voter registration forms. As a result of this ruling, counties will now be permitted to provide voting materials— including voter registration forms, absentee ballot applications and ballots — in languages other than English.
And today we have an update.
Imagine deciding to appeal a court ruling ALLOWING (not requiring) counties to provide election materials in languages other than English as well as in English.
The GOP is completely broken. https://t.co/kJjuBd83Xp
