The Supreme Court today delivered two long-waited opinions on elections in Arizona and donation disclosure in California. In a 6-3 opinion, justices struck down two election laws: one that would have allowed voters to submit a ballot at a different precinct, and another that made it a crime for campaign workers, activists, and others from collecting ballots and delivering them to polling places. The justices also overturned a California law in another 6-3 vote that the state cannot require charities to report their major donors, stating it’s a First Amendment violation.
