The order prohibits members of Clean Elections USA from carrying weapons or wearing body armor within 250 feet of drop boxes.
A federal judge in Phoenix issued a restraining order Tuesday night against a group that has been photographing and recording voters casting ballots at drop boxes in Arizona.
The order, issued by U.S. District Judge Michael Liburdi, prohibits Clean Elections USA from “openly” carrying weapons or “visibly wear body armor” within 250 feet of drop boxes. Liburdi’s order also bars the group’s members from taking photos, recording, following or yelling at voters within 75 feet of drop box locations.
Furthermore, he told the group’s founder, Melody Jennings, to post a message to her account on Truth Social, former President Donald Trump’s social media platform, that reads in part: “It is not always illegal to deposit multiple ballots in a ballot drop box. It is legal to deposit the ballot of a family member, household member, or person for whom you are the caregiver.”
The group and its founder were accused of “intimidation and harassment” of voters as they dropped off their ballots in Maricopa County. The lawsuit was filed by the Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans and Voto Latino.

Hello Nan. I am trying to remember if this is the same judge that first denied the restraining order and rules saying it was not intimidating or a second one. Either way it has become clear that they were there to harass people using the drop boxes because they have been told by Tucker and Sean along with the rest of the right wing media that people show up at these and spend hours filling them up with trunk loads of fake ballots. There is so much wrong with that and no way those ballots would count nor match voter rolls but what does reality have to do with a good conspiracy like the big lie told by a cult leader? Anyway more of these types of voters suppression need to be removed or fixed. Hugs
