Donald Trump and his supporters waited months for this moment.
Now they will finally get their day in court.
And the Supreme Court took up an election integrity case that is bad news for Democrats.
Trump supporters were disappointed when the Supreme Court refused to hear challenges to Pennsylvania’s vote-by-mail laws.
But the court did agree to take up an election integrity case out in Arizona where Democrats sued claiming Arizona laws discarded ballots from voters that voted in the wrong precinct and declared ballot harvesting illegal.
CBS reports, “The first measure, the out-of-precinct policy, discards ballots from those who vote in the wrong precinct. The second rule outlaws so-called ‘ballot harvesting’ and allows only election officials, mail carriers, family or household members, or caregivers to return another person’s mail-in ballot. Those who run afoul of the ballot-collection law face up to two years in prison and a $150,000 fine.”
This challenge dates back to the 2016 election and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals previously ruled in the Democrats’ favor claiming the laws discriminated against black and Hispanic voters.
The six-justice conservative majority on the Supreme Court agreeing to take up this case sends a strong signal they are looking to get involved with election integrity cases and establish some clear rules of the road so the American people can have faith in the election outcomes.
And in 2013, conservatives on the Court struck down provisions of the Voting Rights Act that blocked nine states—Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia—from making any changes to voting laws or procedures without approval from a federal court or the government.
This previous decision—as well as the current makeup of the Court—leads Trump supporters to enter the case with the hope that the justices will uphold the Arizona laws and free states to put measures in place to guarantee the security of the vote and eliminate questions about the legitimacy of the outcome.
In his speech at CPAC, Donald Trump attacked the Supreme Court for not taking up the Pennsylvania case about allowing ballots that came in up to three days after the election to still count.
That case would not have changed the outcome of the race but it would have allowed the Supreme Court to step in and stop partisan judges and state officials from usurping the power of the state legislature to change election law.
The justices likely passed on that case because of its association with the January 6 riot at the Capitol.
But by hearing the Arizona case, the justices are telling Americans that they understand election integrity is a major issue.
