GOP Claims ‘Integrity’ in Voting Suppression

Nel's New Day

Thirteen days before Election Day, courts are still changing voting rules. Tonight, the Supreme Court, in a 5-3 vote, overturned an appeals court and allowed Alabama to ban curbside voting despite the danger of COVID-19 and the need for disabled to have this procedure. The court had already refused to remove Alabama’s requirement requiring affidavits signed by a notary or two adult witnesses for absentee ballots as well as the demand these ballots include copies of photo IDs. A Black voter pointed out Blacks are again in danger of dying from voting.

In an opposite decision, the Supreme Court decided 4-4 earlier this week allowing Pennsylvania to accept ballots up to three days after Election Day if postmarked by the Election Day deadline. Four “originalist” Supreme Court justices—Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Clarence Thomas—dissented in their support of the state legislature over the state Supreme Court in following…
