The Supreme Court is set to decide two huge Arizona election cases.
The first one is throwing out ballots cast in the wrong precinct.
The second forbids ballot harvesting.
The case before the justices concerns a pair of voting limits in Arizona. One of the disputed policies requires election officials to throw out entire ballots cast in the wrong precinct, even for statewide races where a voter’s polling place has no bearing on the outcome of the contest.
The second Arizona policy at issue generally forbids so-called ballot harvesting, a practice that involves third parties collecting and delivering early votes.
Republican defenders of the two policies argue they’re necessary to protect against voter fraud and ensure election integrity. Democratic challengers counter that the restrictions aim to suppress the vote of minorities, who tend to vote for Democrats.
AP GOP Chair Kelli Ward Spoke out on this case during her daily update:
She pointed out the major issues with ballot harvesting.
It creates chain of custody issues.
It allows for ballots to be mishandled and opens the door for more fraud.
