Arizona Republican Party v. Democratic National Committee

Pending petition

Linked with:

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
19-1258 9th Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issues: (1) Whether Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act compels states to authorize any voting practice that would be used disproportionately by racial minorities, even if existing voting procedures are race-neutral and offer all voters an equal opportunity to vote; and (2) whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit correctly held that Arizona’s ballot-harvesting prohibition was tainted by discriminatory intent even though the legislators were admittedly driven by partisan interests and by supposedly “unfounded” concerns about voter fraud.
