Moore v. Harper and Marc Elias’s Curious Idea of ‘Democracy’

Through David B Rivkin Jr and Jason Snead

Mark Elias, the leading Democratic election advocate, laments that this fall “a dangerous theory will have its day in court.” That’s rich – he was instrumental in getting it there by litigating the case that raises it. But his dire warnings have garnered a lot of support. A Washington Post headline, commented on by a trio of legal scholars, blared the threat of a “assault on our democracy.”

Moore vs. Harper is the result of a nationwide campaign led by Mr. Elias to mow down state election laws that make voting easy but hard to cheat. Those efforts are a big part of why the Supreme Court felt the need to get involved.
