Voter rights groups challenge RI witness requirements for mail ballots

Voter advocacy groups have filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court seeking a reprieve from witness requirements for people seeking to vote by mail ballot, including shut-ins and others trying hard to avoid potential exposure to COVID by limiting in-person contacts. The lawsuit asks the court to block, for this election cycle only, the requirement that Rhode Islanders seeking to vote by mail have two witnesses or a notary sign their ballot envelope.
