Tallahassee Reports: SCOTUS Ruling on Arizona Favors Florida’s Election Integrity Measures

“On Thursday, the United States Supreme Court ruled 6-3 in a case that impacts Florida’s election reforms. The ruling supports a new set of voting reform laws signed by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey. In their decision, SCOTUS signaled support for measures taken by states like Florida in their attempt to clamp down on election and voter fraud.

The Florida Legislature, lead by Republicans, passed an election reform bill and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed it into law on May 6. The bill sets in place new requirements for ballot drop boxes and mail-in voting.

Florida Republicans based the legislation on 2012 grand jury recommendations in a voter fraud case out of Miami-Dade County, as well as election fraud cases found to take place during the 2020 presidential election.”
