Arizona Ballot Collection
Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee
Lawsuit brought by the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) and others against Arizona challenging two provisions of law that criminalized ballot collection and required ballots cast in the wrong precinct to be rejected. The en banc 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals held that the law discriminated against minority voters and struck down both practices. The Arizona Republican attorney general appealed the case to the U.S. Supreme Court, which held 6-3 that neither law violated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act and both laws could remain in place.
