Supreme Court to review Arizona 'ballot harvesting' law

The law itself, however, remains in effect through the presidential election and until the justices rule.

PHOENIX — The Supreme Court said Friday it will review a 2016 Arizona law that bars anyone but a family member or caregiver from returning another person’s early ballot. 

The law itself, however, remains in effect through the presidential election and until the justices rule.

A federal appeals court ruled in January that Arizona’s law banning so-called “ballot harvesting” violates the Voting Rights Act and the Constitution. 

But the court put its ruling on hold while the Supreme Court was asked to take the case.
