A lot of Americans are concerned about the integrity of America’s election process after all the shenanigans pulled by Democrats this past November.
Donald Trump and his supporters have been trying to get the Supreme Court to take on cases involving election integrity.
And the Supreme Court finally took up the one voter fraud case that has Trump supporters cheering with glee.
The Supreme Court heard oral arguments on Tuesday in a case that dates back to 2016 involving two huge provisions in Arizona law designed to prevent voter fraud.
One of the provisions bans ballot harvesting and the other provision discards ballots if a vote is cast in the wrong precinct.
In 2016, Democrats sued over the two provisions, claiming they were “racist” and in direct violation of the Voting Rights Act.
And the Supreme Court just decided to take up the case.
At issue is the Voting Rights Act’s Section 2, which bans any rule that results in voting discrimination “on account of race or color.” This provision has been the main tool used to show that voting curbs discriminate against minorities since the Supreme Court in 2013 gutted another section of the statute that determined which states with a history of racial discrimination needed federal approval to change voting laws.
The Democratic National Committee and the Arizona Democratic Party sued to try to overturn Arizona’s restrictions. The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last year found that the restrictions violated the Voting Rights Act, though they remained in effect for the Nov. 3 election. Biden defeated Trump in Arizona.
This is good news for Trump and his supporters.
No one can rewind time and change the funny games that happened during the election in November 2020.
But precedent can be set for future elections to come to restore the integrity of our election process and restore Americans’ confidence in that process.
Justice Clarence Thomas argued that the court should have taken up the challenge to Pennsylvania’s vote-by-mail law in order to set clear guidelines that will stop judges and state officials from changing election laws without the approval of the state legislature.
Hopefully, the new case in Arizona will give the Supreme Court the opportunity to do just that.
