Brnovich takes ballot harvesting case to U.S. Supreme Court

Attorney General Mark Brnovich is warning the U.S. Supreme Court that all of Arizona’s election laws could be subject to challenge if it doesn’t overturn an appellate ruling voiding the state’s “ballot harvesting” laws as racially motivated.

In a new filing Monday, Brnovich lays out for the justices why he believes the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals got it wrong earlier this year when it declared that the state acted illegally in making it a crime to return someone else’s early ballot. He said the state had good reason to act in a way to prevent the potential for fraud and intimidation of voters by political operatives who were collecting these ballots.

But Brnovich also told the justices they have to slap down the logic used by the appellate judges — that Arizona lawmakers enacted the ballot-harvesting law with the goal of suppressing minority vote — in voiding the law. He said if that verbiage is allowed to stand, it could pave the way for future challenges, and not just here.

“If you accept the logic of the 9th Circuit, it would jeopardize every voting integrity law in almost every state,” he told Capitol Media Services.
