True the Vote Drops Lawsuit, Statement by Secretary Hosemann

“The Attorney General has been informed the federal decision protecting the privacy of Mississippi voters’ birth dates will not be appealed. Furthermore, True the Vote has requested to withdraw the lawsuit in its entirety and stated they will never litigate this issue again in Mississippi.

The attempt to acquire voters’ birth dates from the Circuit Clerks and the Secretary of State was unwise, expensive, and unnecessary for any election contest. Our position has now been upheld by the Supreme Court of Mississippi and the Federal District Court.”

Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann
