BREAKING: Supreme Court Deals Massive Blow To Dems’ Lawsuits Against Election Integrity Laws

Their hopes are dead…

The US Supreme Court shut down every hope Democrats had to thwart election integrity laws in states heading into the 2022 election. The SCOTUS ruled 6-3 to uphold Arizona’s laws. This returns their election laws to the norm before the coronavirus pandemic.

The new election laws can now regulate where provisional ballots can be cast and literally bans ballot harvesting.

“The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld two Arizona voting restrictions that a lower court had said discriminated against minority voters, a ruling that suggests that it will be harder to successfully challenge a spate of new laws passed by state legislatures in the aftermath of the 2020 election,” the Washington Post reported.

“Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote the opinion in the 6-to-3 ruling, with the court’s conservative majority in charge,” the report continued. “The court’s liberals joined an opinion by Justice Elena Kagan protesting that the decision weakens the shield provided by the Voting Rights Act (VRA), first passed in 1965 to forbid laws that result in discrimination based on race.”

Alito revealed that Arizona’s law makes it easy to cast votes and he actually sides with Arizona’s election laws.

“In these cases, we are called upon for the first time to apply §2 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 to regulations that govern how ballots are collected and counted,” Alito wrote in his opinion. “Arizona law generally makes it very easy to vote. All voters may vote by mail or in person for nearly a month before election day, but Arizona imposes two restrictions that are claimed to be unlawful. First, in some counties, voters who choose to cast a ballot in person on election day must vote in their own precincts or else their ballots will not be counted. Second, mailin ballots cannot be collected by anyone other than an election official, a mail carrier, or a voter’s family member, household member, or caregiver.”

The justice discussed the Voting Rights Act and other lawsuits before sharing his thoughts.

“In light of the principles set out above, neither Arizona’s out-of-precinct rule nor its ballot-collection law violates §2 of the VRA,” Alito states. “Arizona’s out-of-precinct rule enforces the requirement that voters who choose to vote in person on election day must do so in their assigned precincts. Having to identify one’s own polling place and then travel there to vote does not exceed the ‘usual burdens of voting’… On the contrary, these tasks are quintessential examples of the usual burdens of voting. Not only are these unremarkable burdens, but the District Court’s uncontested findings show that the State made extensive efforts to reduce their impact on the number of valid votes ultimately cast.”

Alito made an interesting note that statistics have been “modified” in many cases to make false arguments that voter laws affect minority votes.

“The Court of Appeals attempted to paint a different picture, but its use of statistics was highly misleading for reasons that were well explained by Judge Easterbrook in a §2 case involving voter IDs,” Alito states. “As he put it, a distorted picture can be created by dividing one percentage by another… He gave this example: ‘If 99.9% of whites had photo IDs, and 99.7% of blacks did,’ it could be said that ‘blacks are three times as likely as whites to lack qualifying ID’ (0.3 ÷ 0.1 = 3), but such a statement would mask the fact that the populations were effectively identical.”

The mainstream media trashed election laws. They argue that the laws are made to suppress minorities. Well, there’s zero evidence that election integrity laws affect these groups. Yes, they talked about the voter ID laws.

The most recent comprehensive research shows that voter IDs will in no way impede registration or voting in any other way. The 2020 presidential election demonstrated through big turnout in African-American communities that this is nothing but a media myth.

The National bureau of Economic Research conducted a study based on information obtained from ten-years of voting in the US, covering the period from 2008 to 2018. They found out that voter ID laws “have no negative effect on registration or turnout, overall or for any group defined by race, gender, age, or party affiliation.”

Enrico Cantoni at the University of Bologna and Vincent Pons at Harvard Business School conducted the study. It was published in February 2019.

Moreover, about 95%-96% of all African-Americans already have an ID. They can get their IDs for free in many states.

Republican senators slammed the S1. “For the People Act” in June. They destroyed it with a 50-50 tie. The US Senate needs non-budgetary items to get 60 votes.
