A lawsuit was filed in federal court in Michigan challenging the state’s practice of providing access to information on who votes only to the two major political parties. The suite was filed by the ACLU for three smaller political parties, a weekly newspaper and a political consultant. The plaintiffs complained that the statute ”gives valuable political resources to the two major parties to use for almost any purpose while making it a crime for anyone else in the state to use or acquire this information.” (1/14/08)
