Title "DNC v. Reagan (also titled Feldman v. Arizona Sec'y of State)"
Date Sep 1, 2020
Author Stanford University
Abstract Plaintiff registered voters sued state and county officials alleging that the allocation of polling locations discriminated against Hispanics and African Americans in violation of section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, and the First Amendment. Plaintiffs challenged (1) Arizona’s policy of wholly discarding, rather than counting or partially counting, ballots cast out-of-precint, and (2) H.B. 2023, a statute that, subject to certain exceptions, criminalizes the collection of another person’s early ballot. Plaintiffs sought an order enjoining defendants from allocating polling locations for the 2016 general election without first submitting the allocation plan to this Court for review and approval, from rejecting provisional ballots solely because they were cast in the wrong precinct or polling location, and from enforcing H.B. 2023 that made it a felony to turn a signed and sealed ballot into the county registrar on behalf of another voter.
