Supreme Court upholds restrictive Arizona voting laws in test of Voting Rights Act


The Supreme Court has ruled 6-3 in favor of two state laws in Arizona, setting a precedent which voting rights advocates argue will make it more difficult for disadvantaged and non-white citizens to vote. One law holds that only a voter, themselves, or a member of their family, or a caregiver may collect or deliver a ballot on their behalf. The other mandates that election officials eliminate votes that were accidentally cast in the wrong precinct.
