Simon plans to appeal data ruling

ST. PAUL (AP) — Democratic Secretary of State Steve Simon says he expects to ask the Minnesota Supreme Court to review a ruling that voter data sought by a conservative election watchdog group is public.

A Ramsey County judge sided with the Minnesota Voters Alliance last July, and the Court of Appeals upheld that decision Monday.

The group sued to obtain data on millions of voters that Simon’s office contends should be kept private.
