The U.S. Supreme Court has reinstated a new Arizona law that makes it a felony to collect early ballots.
Saturday’s order from the nation’s highest court overturns an appeals court decision a day earlier that blocked the law from being enforced. The decision is a blow to Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts and groups that in the wake of the lower-court decision had geared up to help voters deliver their ballots to the polls.
Democrats allege the law hurts minorities’ ability to vote.
