In 2020, some states loosened requirements for mail-in/absentee ballots, added more drop-off boxes, automatically mailed ballots to all registered voters, offered on-site registration, extended voting times, and extended post-election-day windows to receive mail-in votes for vote tabulation.

In some of those cases, some of these changes would not have been permitted by those states' constitutions, but were allowed do to sort of "emergency" declarations from state legislature, sometimes the election commissions, sometimes governors.

Would this ruling also put limits on those emergency voting access changes? 🤔

What's interesting is Utah has had 100% vote by mail ballots for years - but no one at the GOP ever claimed voter fraud here because the state always goes to the GOP.

Actually some of the whack-jobs down here in Washington County have been trying to mandate "independent" manual counts of votes instead of the current process, citing "evidence" of voter fraud.

I'd love to see that evidence, but I love to see those morons try to count past ten with their shoes on.
 
I love that this is being pushed as a "both sides!" story to Clearance Thomas literally selling court decisions despite the story itself saying this is common regardless of the justice or who appointed them.

While the two are not equal, this one still doesn't look good.
 
You're right - one thing I didn't read in there was that Sotomayor directed her aids to pump her book. SCOTUS aids tend to align closely with the judges they work for, they might have done this on their own or thought they were supposed to/sucked up to the boss.
