Virginia State Conference of the NAACP v. Kaine

Advancement Project, on behalf of the Virginia State Conference of the NAACP, sued Virginia Governor Tim Kaine and top Commonwealth election officials for unconstitutional allocation of polling place resources. The lawsuit asserted that election officials in Richmond, Norfolk, and Virginia Beach had adopted resource allocation plans that unconstitutionally, and otherwise, unlawfully under- or mis-allocated polling place resources–specifically, voting machines and poll workers–in a manner that infringed and burdened the rights of the voters in these cities and that would disfranchise voters in these locales, including, particularly, African-American voters in Richmond and Virginia Beach.
