The American Constitutional Rights Union (ACRU) applauds a 6-3 ruling of the Supreme Court re-affirming states’ authority to manage their own elections and protect the integrity of their residents’ most fundamental right — voting. ACRU submitted an amicus brief in support of Arizona’s voting integrity measures. “Free and fair elections is a fundamental principle we must protect,” notes ACRU President Lori Roman. “Why does the left continue to oppose the basic election integrity tenet of ‘Easy to vote, hard to cheat?’ We’re pleased the Supreme Court has taken a stand to preserve one of our most fundamental rights.”
BREAKING NEWS: In 6-3 ruling, SCOTUS upholds two Arizona voting provisions: a ban on so-called "ballot harvesting," and a policy that throws out an entire ballot if it was cast in the wrong precinct. Challengers argued that both provisions discriminate against minority voters.

Sometimes ballots magically appear, and sometimes they magically disappear.

Military voting is of critical importance to Armed Forces command. But like any bureaucracy, execution can be overly cumbersome and confusing. Army spouse Tracey Miller examines the complexities of military voting (from personal experience) noting that instructions like, “fold this piece of paper and make it into an envelope” are confusing and serve as a barrier to military voting. Our service members shouldn’t have to haul around scissors, tape and extra paper in election years.
In the coolest story of the week, NASA astronaut Kate Rubins voted from space. She is currently stationed on the International Space Station. In 1997, Congress passed a bill allowing voting from space. Who knew? We assume she had no “interference” from her Russian colleagues, Sergey 1 and Sergey 2 as they are affectionately referred to at NASA. A great story to share with your kids.
New Jersey Democrat Governor Phil Murphy used COVID as an excuse to mail ballots to every address in the state, whether the addressee is alive or dead, or relocated. NJ election officials, overwhelmed by this unnecessary political maneuver, can’t get it right. In Bergen County, officials sent out nearly 7,000 incorrect ballots to 28,000 voters. The officials who made this mistake claim there will be no confusing results. Right.
EIB has been documenting the confusion inherent in the liberal push for mail-only balloting—including in this edition. The evidence is clear. Our colleague Chuck DeVore of the Texas Public Policy Foundation succinctly notes, “the rush to mail-in balloting will overwhelm the local elections officials who do the job of counting the vote.” We suggest this was exactly what the left planned.
