The law has been in effect since January. If a voter form was not turned over to officials within ten days of it being collected, the organization faced a $250 fine for each form.
Non-profit volunteer groups like the League of Women Voters stopped their voter registration drives altogether.
Marilyn Wills of the League of Women Voters said, "There are no repercussions for people if they do something inadvertently like have an accident on the way home or something and have these voter registration forms in the car, so that's why we did stop registering voters so that we wouldn't incur any fines inadvertently."
With the law found unconstitutional, organizations plan on restarting their registration drives. Department of State officials plan to appeal the decision.
