Supreme Court of the United States

Thompson v. Hebdon

Court: U.S. Supreme Court

Status: Won

Last Updated: 12/15/2020

Overview

Summary

Alaska’s laws limit voters to a maximum of $500 per year to any political candidate or any group other than a political party. When adjusted for inflation, the $500 limit falls below a similar Vermont law the Supreme Court struck down in 2006, making it nearly impossible for Alaskan candidates to communicate with voters in the nation’s largest geographical districts.
