Supreme Court Seems Ready To Uphold Restrictive Voting Laws

The U.S. Supreme Court seemed ready on Tuesday to uphold Arizona’s restrictive voting laws, setting the stage for what happens in the coming months and years, as Republican-dominated state legislatures seek to make voting more difficult. Since the November election, and President Trump’s false claims that the balloting was rigged, Republican-run state legislatures have raced to pass new laws that would curb the modern-day expansion of the right to vote. Many of these laws likely will be challenged in court, and on Tuesday the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case that could set the parameters for which of those restrictive laws survive, and which don’t.
