    Supreme Court Elections Cases

    This webinar is hosted by the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL). For questions or assistance, please contact registration@ncsl.org.

    This webinar will provide a deep dive into two recently decided U.S. Supreme Court elections cases. In Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee the Supreme Court upheld two Arizona voting requirements which the DNC argued had a disparate impact on non-white voters in violation of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. Importantly, the court applied a number of factors which will apply in future cases. Americans for Prosperity Foundation v. Bonta isn’t obviously an elections case. The court held California violated the First Amendment by requiring charitable organizations to disclose their major donors to the state attorney general. In dissent, Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote the court’s decision “marks reporting and disclosure requirements with a bull’s-eye.” Discuss what these decisions mean for state legislatures with Jessica Ring Amunson, Jenner & Block, and Erin Murphy, Kirkland & Ellis. Susan Parnas Frederick, NCSL, will discuss proposed federal legislation related to voting rights.
