Eight Pennsylvania voters, two from Bucks County, and multiple voting rights activist are asking to join a Department of State lawsuit to prevent a controversial audit of the 2020 election and 2021 primary.

The petitioners argue the personal information of about 9 million voters sought in 17 subpoenas risks falling into the wrong hands and is a violation of their right to privacy, a news release from the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania states.

The Republican-led Senate Intergovernmental Operations Committee on Sept. 15 held a party line vote issuing the subpoenas to collect names, dates of birth, addresses and the last date they voted in the November 2020 general election and the May 2021 primary.
