The last time I complied with a demand letter from the Iowa Secretary of State, the information I provided appeared in subsequent legal briefs filed in the Trump Campaign versus Joel Miller hearing (Case #06571EQCV095986). I’m guessing someone is getting ready to file another lawsuit. Why? Joel D. Miller – Linn County Auditor & Commissioner of Elections

Subject: Iowa Code §47.1(6) Demand for Documents
Good Afternoon Auditor Miller,
You are receiving this email because there was litigation in your county regarding the sending of absentee ballot requests pre-filled with voters’ information by your office. Pursuant to Iowa Code §47.1(6), please provide the following records:
- The voter ID, name and address of every voter that was sent a notice by your office as required by the Temporary Restraining Order in place in your county
- The voter ID, name and address of every voter who returned an absentee ballot request form pre-filled with their information by your office
We ask that you provide these records in an expeditious manner, but no later than November 6, 2020. It is our office’s understanding that you have created and are maintaining an Excel spreadsheet with the requested information. Providing a copy of the spreadsheet would fulfill the requirement.
Once you have compiled the requested records, please email be so I can provide you with details on how to upload the records to an sFTP.
