(TheRedAlertNews.com) – Is the United States Supreme Court set to change election laws in the United States of America dramatically?
That’s the question after the court heard what has been described as tense arguments today between parties on both sides of the issue.
As Newsmax describes in “Supreme Court Considers Republican Bid to Transform US Elections“:
“The U.S. Supreme Court held tense arguments on Wednesday in a Republican appeal that could transform American elections by giving politicians more power over voting rules and curbing the ability of state courts to scrutinize their actions in a major case involving North Carolina congressional districts.
“Republican state lawmakers are appealing a decision by North Carolina’s top court to throw out a map delineating the state’s 14 U.S. House of Representatives districts — approved last year by the Republican-controlled state legislature — as unlawfully biased against Democrat voters.” [emphasis added]
“The Republicans are asking the Supreme Court, which has a 6-3 conservative majority, to embrace a legal theory that has gained favor among some conservatives called the “independent state legislature” doctrine. Under that doctrine, they claim that the U.S. Constitution gives state legislatures — and not other entities such as state courts — authority over election rules and electoral district maps.” [emphasis added]
A decision in the case is expected by the end of June when the court’s current term ends.
What is your opinion? Do you side with the Republicans who argue “the U.S. Constitution gives state legislatures — and not other entities such as state courts — authority over election rules and electoral district maps”? Why or why not? Please share your thoughts and views by emailing [email protected]. Thank you.
