‘Ballot harvesting’ suit questions 2016 law; activist calls it violation of her rights

In an extensive ruling, in May 2018, Judge Douglas Rayes said there’s scant evidence that a 2016 law will impose a hardship on the vast majority of people who vote. He said while a majority of Arizonans now vote with early ballots, the vast majority manage to get them turned in without the help of outsiders whose activities are now a crime. He is now hearing arguments in a lawsuit challenging the same law. (AP file photo)
