Supreme Court denies Texas Democrats' demand for mail-in voting

Washington Examiner:
The Supreme Court declined to reinstate an earlier district court ruling forcing Texas officials to provide mail-in ballots to all voters in the state.
The high court rejected a request from the Texas Democratic Party on Friday to override a decision issued by a panel of judges on the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which placed a stay on a district court order that extended mail-in voting provisions to Texans.
"The application to vacate stay presented to Justice Alito and by him referred to the Court is denied," the Supreme Court's rejection read.
Liberal Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor, an Obama nominee, did not disagree with the high court's determination but noted that the case raises notable questions about the 26th Amendment to the Constitution.
The high court's decision means Texas rules on qualifying for ballots will remain in place for the state's July 14 primary runoff election.
Texas Democrats may still try to push their efforts for the November election although their chances of success appear remote.  The apparent vote fraud in the New Jersey mail-in effort probably also harms their prospects.
