Supreme Court Agrees to Hear Effort to Reinstate Arizona Voting Rules
(UnitedVoice.com) – The election is just a month away and there’s still so much uncertainty about how the process is going to work. Democrats have been pushing for the expansion of mail-in voting, and officials don’t even know if they’ll have enough poll workers in each state to count the ballots in a timely manner. Republicans have been fighting against these changes, and they’ve finally been able to get in front of the Supreme Court.
On October 2, the high court agreed to hear a case on Arizona’s election rules that were struck down by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. One rule prohibited peoples’ votes from counting if they voted at the wrong precinct. The other prohibited ballot harvesting in the state.
