Brnovich v. DNC: "It's a Great Day" for Election Integrity

The United States Supreme Court's decision in Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee to uphold Arizona's common-sense voter integrity laws is perhaps the most significant win for federalism and election integrity in recent history, especially at a critical time when Democrats are doing all they can to undermine the security of elections. 

Lawyers Democracy Fund posted highlights from the Court's momentous ruling, written by Justice Alito. 

The Court's ruling not only leaves Arizona's laws intact, but it also protects the efforts of states across the country that are trying to implement meaningful election safeguards to make it easier to vote and harder to cheat.

RNLA Co-Chair Harmeet Dhillon told Fox News how important the Court's decision is for states to be able to pass future election integrity safeguards:

Civil rights and election law attorney Harmeet K. Dhillon, who serves as the co-chair of the Republican National Lawyers Association, explained that the anti-ballot harvesting law is meant "to make sure it’s the person themselves returning their ballots" and that other people are not filling them out.

Likewise, she said the prohibition against counting provisional ballots cast in the wrong precinct "similarly is a fraud protection" because voters are registered at a particular address and this keeps them from being able to vote in multiple locations.

"Both of these measures being upheld by the Supreme Court protect the integrity of elections in Arizona, and frankly it will enable other states to go forward with similar types of measures with the comfort that the United States Supreme Court has blessed these," Dillon told Fox News.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, who argued the case before the Supreme Court, lauded the Court's decision to uphold Arizona's prohibition on ballot trafficking, also known as ballot harvesting, and Arizona's out-of-precinct voting policy:

The court’s decision upheld the state’s ability to enforce the laws meant to keep the election process secure. Brnovich stressed the importance of using measures to reduce fraud.

"Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of our republic and that starts with rational laws that protect not only the right to vote but the accuracy of the results," he said. "Every American deserves to feel confident that their vote is counted and counted accurately."

"It’s a great day," Brnovich told Fox News after the court issued its decision.

Election integrity advocates across the country praised the Court's ruling:

Many conservatives have since highlighted how the Supreme Court's Ruling undermines the DOJ's already baseless lawsuit challenging Georgia's new voting laws:

This decision is a major win for election integrity and lays a clear path for states to continue to implement election safeguards that further promote honest, open, and fair elections. Join the RNLA's webinar on Friday at 2:00 p.m. ET as Supreme Court experts recap this important term.
