A federal appeals court will give a Democratic activist one last chance to argue that she and others should be able to “harvest” ballots in the upcoming general election.
The judges of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals have set an Oct. 3 hearing on Rivko Knox’s challenge to a 2016 Arizona law making the practice a felony.
Knox and her attorneys contend that law violates her constitutional rights and the rights of people to have their ballots taken by others to polling places.
She wants the judges to at least block the state from enforcing the ban while they consider her legal arguments.
