(DCWatchdog.com) – HAPPENING NOW: With a ruling that has Democrats worried and back on their heels, a court in Delaware has decided the new vote-by-mail law in that state is unconstitutional.
Additionally, the court ordered the ruling applies to the November midterm elections, now less than 60 days away.
The big question following the court’s ruling is whether this will be the beginning of a nationwide judicial trend.
As the news team at Newsmax is currently reporting in, “Delaware Judge: State’s Vote-by-Mail Law Unconstitutional“:
“A Delaware judge ruled Wednesday that a new vote-by-mail law enacted earlier this year is unconstitutional and that voting by mail cannot be used in the November election.
“Vice Chancellor Nathan Cook ruled that the law, the result of legislation that Democrats rammed through the General Assembly in less than three weeks this past June, violates a provision in Delaware’s constitution that spells out the circumstances under which a person is allowed to cast an absentee ballot.” [emphasis added]
Specifically, the judge wrote:
“Our Supreme Court and this court have consistently stated that those circumstances are exhaustive. Therefore, as a trial judge, I am compelled by precedent to conclude that the vote-by-mail statute’s attempt to expand absentee voting … must be rejected.” [emphasis added]
One voting law expert who wanted to stay anonymous told us that the GOP would move quickly to look for other states and jurisdictions with constitutional provisions like those in Delaware and, if so, file challenges to vote-by-mail laws in those states and jurisdictions.
