Landmark Defending Arizona's Ballot Harvesting Statutory Limits.

Updated: Oct 10

Landmark Legal Foundation is very pleased that the U.S. Supreme Court will review the constitutionality of the Arizona legislature's limitation on ballot harvesting.


Arizona's vote by mail system used to allow special interest groups to knock on doors and go into retirement communities to collect ballots for delivery to polling places. The state legislature determined that allowing unlimited ballot collection, known as "ballot harvesting," exposed voters to improper influence or outright fraud. Arizona's lawmakers responded by limiting the number of ballots an individual could deliver. Progressive groups challenged the law contending the Arizona law was a racist, designed to suppress minority voting. A divided Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals held that the law was unconstitutional. Landmark disagrees -- The U.S. Constitution gives the individual states authority to regulate elections. Arizona is acting reasonably and responsibly. Landmark is supporting Arizona's request that the U.S. Supreme Court review the Ninth Circuit's wrongheaded decision.


The case is Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee. The Foundation's brief can be read here.
