Massachusetts’ new and progressive voting law will remain in place as the state’s supreme judicial court struck down a Republican attempt to curtail it. This article by Steve Le Blanc is published by AP News. Here is an excerpt:
An effort led by Massachusetts Republicans to block election officials from putting into effect the state’s new mail-in and early voting law was denied Monday by the state Supreme Judicial Court.
The decision ensures Massachusetts residents will be able to take advantage of the expanded voter options this year.
Opponents had argued the new law — dubbed the VOTES Act — violates the state constitution.
