Karrin Taylor Robson commends SCOTUS decision upholding Arizona election integrity measures
Today, Republican and Arizona gubernatorial candidate Karrin Taylor Robson issued a statement on the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the case of Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee. By a 6-3 decision, the justices upheld Arizona provisions that bar ballot harvesting and out-of-precinct voting.
“Nothing could be more fundamental to our system of government than the right to free, fair and honest elections. Election fraud is a crime against democracy. I thank President Trump for appointing the conservative court majority that helped make possible this decision upholding Arizona’s election security measures, including a ban on ballot harvesting and decades-old requirement that people vote within their designated precinct.
“These are common sense safeguards. That they were challenged by the Democratic National Committee, and Secretary of State Katie Hobbs refused to do her job in defending Arizona’s own election laws, says something about the state of the radical Left in 2021. If they had their way, it’s clear that liberal extremists would eliminate voter ID and other protections as they open the ballot box to non-citizens and anyone else intent on defrauding the election. And Democrat Katie Hobbs would do nothing to stop them.
“As Governor, I’ll ensure Arizona elections are the nation’s best: accessible to voters and impenetrable to fraudsters and cheats.”
