Supreme Court blocks curbside voting in Alabama

This impacts the July 14 runoff

Posted: Jul 2, 2020 9:59 PM

MONTGOMERY, Ala.- The U.S. Supreme Court has blocked a lower court ruling allowing curbside voting in Alabama and waiving some absentee ballot requirements during the coronavirus pandemic.

Conservative justices granted Alabama’s request to stay a federal judge’s order that would allow local officials to offer curbside voting in the July 14 runoff and loosen absentee ballot requirements in three of the state’s large counties.

The order will remain stayed while the court decides whether to hear Alabama’s appeal. Alabama argued that it would be confusing to change absentee ballot rules in three of Alabama’s 67 counties and that curbside voting would be a major change done right before the election.
