Former Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and the conservative group Judicial Watch are challenging California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D) vote-by-mail order.
The groups are challenging a directive by Newsom to send every registered voter a ballot for the November election, making California the first state to switch to all-mail elections.
The article goes on to state the following:
The complaint argues the move by Newsom “is an unlawful attempt to supersede and replace California election law.”
On May 8, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom issued Executive Order N-64-20, which orders the November 3, 2020 general election to be conducted as an all-mail ballot election, according to sos.ca.gov. “Accordingly, all registered voters in California will receive a vote-by-mail ballot in the mail prior to the election.”
Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit in a federal court in Sacramento on behalf of Issa.
They argue that the governor’s directive could hurt Issa’s campaign.
