Collecting ballots for delivery is a TERRIBLE idea.
Whoever thought that transporting large amounts of ballots by mail, or any other method of collection and delivery either had a screw loose, or they knew exactly what they were doing.
SCOTUS will reportedly issue a ruling soon in the ballot harvesting case brought forward by Arizona state Attorney General Mark Brnovich.
Personally, I think ballot harvesting, drop boxes, etc are the second biggest threat to election integrity—falling only second to networked voting machines.
Keep your eyes peeled on this decision—the future of the country may depend on it.
This is what people are saying:
Kelli Ward: AZ Case on Democrat Ballot Harvesting Will Be Decided by Supreme Court this Month – “We Are Hoping for a Victory” #BallotHarvesting is a critical component of #ElectionFraud. #SCOTUS is already dangerously close to upholding election fraudhttps://t.co/5M6O6lpyLC

If SCOTUS bless off on ballot harvesting and all the fraud associated with it, America is toast. Forget voting, there will be nothing left but revolution and secession. Maybe it's time to bust up this failed republic into 50 sovereign nations!

The Epoch Times reports:
However, Brnovich argued to the Supreme Court that the law barely impacted minority groups’ ability to vote and cited “slight statistical differences.”
“No one was denied the opportunity,” he said in his arguments before the court earlier this year.
Brnovich further stipulated there are a “plethora of options” for voters to cast ballots in elections, saying that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals used that small statistical difference and then “tried to extrapolate that somehow that Arizona’s laws were racist or unconstitutional.”
Also during his arguments, the attorney general said that the law is a sensible election rule that exists in dozens of other states. Meanwhile, if the court strikes down Arizona state law, it would erode the public’s trust in elections, Brnovich contended.
SCOTUS likely to issue major ruling on #BallotHarvesting soon.

Since there's a lot of catastrophizing here about SCOTUS' upcoming decision in Brnovich v. DNC, I will remind you that the actual rules being challenged in the Arizona are quite narrow.
1. A ballot harvesting prohibition
2. A requirement that people vote in their precincts. 1/

Tuscon.Com gave us a closer look into Arizona’s ballot harvesting case:
Also at issue is the legality of a state statute that says only votes cast at the proper precinct are counted. Challengers said there is no reason to ignore votes that would be legal regardless of where they were cast, like for a president or statewide office.
Brnovich argued that is necessary to properly administer the voting system.
He also said that the extent of the impact of that law is minimal, saying that in the 2016 election there were only 3,970 ballots that were rejected because they were cast in the wrong precinct out of more than 2.6 million votes cast by all methods, including early and day-of voting.
But Jessica Ring Amunson, representing challengers, said the important thing for the justices to consider is the evidence that minority voters were twice as likely to have their ballots rejected because of being in the wrong precinct than white voters.
