Virginia Appeals U.S. District Court Decision that Invalidated Ban on Out-of-State Circulators

The Virginia State Board of Elections is asking the 4th circuit to reinstate the Virginia law that makes it illegal for out-of-state petitioners to work in Virginia. In the 4th circuit, the case is Libertarian Party of Virginia v Judd, 12-1996. In the meantime, the ban is not in effect. Virginia had asked U.S. District Court Judge John Gibney to stay his own opinion, but he refused. He wrote, “The Defendants have not demonstrated even the slightest amount of irreparable injury if the residency restriction is not in effect for the fall elections.”
