(NewsReady.com) – On Monday, October 5, the Supreme Court began a new term despite being one judge down in the wake of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death. It’s notable because this term could be one of the most consequential in American history. And, the justices are not shying away from hot button topics.
On October 2, the Supreme Court announced it would hear a case about Arizona voting rules. Specifically, a set of rules Democrats claim discriminate against minorities.
One of them prohibits anyone but a caregiver or family member from submitting someone else’s ballots. In other words, the rule outlaws ballot harvesting. The other regulation allows Arizona officials to discard ballots if a voter accidentally cast a ballot at the wrong precinct.

Republicans believe ballot harvesting can lead to fraud and they’d like to end the practice. GOP lawmakers understand protecting our elections means protecting our democracy. It’s unknown if the court is going to rule on the issue before November 3.
