BREAKING: Supreme Court Upholds Arizona Voter Restrictions in 6-3 Decision

In a victory for conservatives, Thursday the Supreme Court ruled that two Arizona “Republican-backed ballot restrictions” do not violate the Voter Rights Act of 1965.

Per Reuters “The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday endorsed two Republican-backed ballot restrictions in Arizona that a lower court found had disproportionately burdened Black, Latino, and Native American voters, handing a defeat to voting rights advocates and Democrats who had challenged the measures.”

“The 6-3 ruling, with the court’s conservative justices in the majority, held that the restrictions on early ballot collection by third parties and where absentee ballots may be cast did not violate the Voting Rights Act, a landmark 1965 federal law that prohibits racial discrimination in voting,” the report adds.

The ruling could have implications with the Biden admin DOJ’s lawsuit against voter restrictions passed in Georgia.
