SCOTUS To Issue Ruling On Ballot Harvesting Soon?


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:

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.

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.
