SCOTUS Saturday: Idaho and elections

In what we will likely see as a general trend for the next few months, the Supreme Court addressed a local election matter. In this one, they imposed a stay on a lower court ruling which allowed easier access for a group to collect signatures for ballot access. At present, and with some of the support of the court’s left (this was granted by Justice Kagan with concurrences by Roberts, Alito, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh), we are not likely to see a great trend of loosening of present state rules, even with COVID-19 concerns.

At present, we do not have a lot of applicability of the court dealing with vote harvesting concerns; but what it DOES point toward is the matter that the Supreme Court may not allow changing rules in the short term, with the election so close.
