UPDATE: Republicans Lose Indiana Early Vote Challenge

By  | 

I posted about the attempt by some Indiana Republicans to shut down early voting in heavily Democratic precincts and throw early votes out.

And as the title telegraphs, their gambit didn’t work.

From Indiana Law Blog:

The Indiana Supreme Court just agreed, by a vote of 3-2, to decline jurisdiction over the Republicans’ appeal. This means their only recourse is to pursue an appeal through the normal means, that is, to the Indiana Court of Appeals.

It’s unlikely the COA will agree to expedite, now that the Supreme Court has declined to intervene.

Frankly, it’s a big disconcerting that the decision was this close, but thankfully the voters came out on top in the end.
