“The Supreme Court has remained surprisingly centrist on voting rights. That’s a pleasant surprise.” (Ned Foley)

Ned Foley in WaPo:

The center holds at the Supreme Court in voting cases, at least for now, and that is a very good thing.

In rulings from the presidential battlegrounds of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and North Carolina, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh held the balance of power between two trios of justices on their left and right. The pair steered the court to a sensible centrist position on the enforcement of voting rules heading into Election Day. (Justice Amy Coney Barrett, the court’s new member, did not participate in any of these decisions.)
