Today (11/27/2019), I filed my answers to the arguments made by the Iowa Secretary of State (SoS) in his motion to dismiss my HAVA complaint. As the banner on my home page indicates, I wear many hats. I am the author of the answers, but I am not a lawyer. My brief is functional, but it is not lawyerly. It is 128 pages long and includes 18 exhibits.
To save you from having to scroll through 128 pages, I embedded the links to my online sources into the exhibit numbers. If you want to see an exhibit that does not have a link, please reach out to me via the contact form.
Next steps. The SoS has until 12/5/2019 to respond to these answers and the resistance I filed on 11/26/2019. Unless the SoS and I decide to settle before 12/9/2019, the Voter Registration Commission, in its role as the Presiding Officer, will hold a hearing at 10am on 12/9/2019 in the SoS conference room on the 1st Floor of the Lucas State Office Building on the Capitol Complex. The hearing will be open to the public.
In the meantime, feel free to use the contact form to reach me. Happy Thanksgiving! Joel D. Miller – Linn County Auditor
