Federal Judge Reject Democrats Voting Requests in AZ

A Federal Judge rejected a bid by Arizona Democrats to force Counties to tally the votes of people who show up at the wrong Polling place.

In his ruling late Tuesday, Judge Douglas Rayes acknowledged that Arizona has a history of discrimination in voting practices.

But Rayes said challengers, led by the State and National Democratic Parties, failed to show that the current restrictions affect minorities any more than the population as a whole.

This is the second defeat for the Democrats.

Judge Rayes had earlier refused to block the State from enforcing its new law making it a felony for individuals to collect Early ballots from others and bring them to the Polling place.

On Tuesday the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals refused to disturb that ruling.
