The Supreme Court ruled in favor of an Arizona voting law that put restrictions on absentee voting and ballot harvesting.
In upholding the law, the Supreme Court ruled that states are allowed to pass laws that prevent voter fraud.
“Arizona law generally makes it very easy to vote,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote. “One strong and entirely legitimate state interest is the prevention of fraud. Fraud can affect the outcome of a close election, and fraudulent votes dilute the right of citizens to cast ballots that carry appropriate weight. Fraud can also undermine public confidence in the fairness of elections and the perceived legitimacy of the announced outcome.”
The Supreme Court defended laws that are crucial to preserving our democracy, which is a huge win for all Americans.

Obviously, the ruling prompted criticism from President Biden who is pushing the For the People Act, which will work in the opposite direction by opening up elections to more fraud. The For the People Act is also a selfish scheme by Democrats to secure wins in future elections.
In his criticism of the Supreme Court ruling, Biden had concluded, “Democracy is on the line. We can do this together.” Unfortunately, he is right, but not in the way he meant. Democracy is on the line as long as Democrats continue to push the For the People Act. Laws like the one passed in Arizona are the remedy, and they will ensure that our democracy is not threatened by leftist policies.
