Description
A district court judge says Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz cannot move forward with new rules that would challenge voters appearing on databases as noncitizens.

District Judge Mary Pat Gunderson issued a ruling Friday blocking Schultz from implementing voting rules he established without holding a public hearing.

Schultz created the new rules in July, using an administrative emergency rulemaking process. He says he needed to act quickly before the November election because noncitizens might be registered to vote.
