Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich and the Arizona GOP separately petitioned the Supreme Court in April to review the state’s ballot-collection law that limits who may handle a ballot and to review a federal appeals court decision that said Arizona violated section 2 of the Voting Rights Act in its policies affecting ballot-harvesting.

Ballot-harvesting is the practice of collecting and submitting ballots by a third-party instead of by the individual voters themselves.

The justices consolidated the two cases for an upcoming argument lasting one hour. The argument’s date has not yet been scheduled.
