The Ninth Circuit will hear Mecinas v Hobbs, 20-16301, on Friday, January 14, 2022, in Pasadena, California. This is the Democratic Party’s lawsuit that challenges the Arizona law on order of candidates on the ballot. The law says the nominees of the party that polled the highest vote for Governor (in that county) will appear first on the ballot. The Republican Party enjoyed the top spot on the November 2020 ballot in all counties except Apache, Coconino, Pima, and Santa Cruz Counties.
This is the only one of the six Democratic Party lawsuits on ballot order that is still alive. The Democratic Party lost the other five cases.
