    Supreme Court rules 5-4 approving Corporations the right to vote

     
    In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court has ruled that corporations are people with the right to vote in public elections. In an opinion, in which Justice Alito cited the Article XV of the Constitution for the ruling. The ruling now allows corporate business to vote in all public elections. Justice Alito went on to say how the process could work, “The board of directors, of any given corporation, could hold a vote and elect a registered agent to cast the ballot at the polls.” In the dissenting opinion, Justice Ginsburg gave a scathing rebuke on the ruling stating that this ruling gives a defining middle finger to our democracy.

    Justice Ginsburg went on to say, “There is nothing conservative about a radical ruling that changes 238 years of precedent in our laws and values. The wrath of public outrage is boiling over into what could only be destined for a revolution over our current governance.”

    A confusing ruling that leaves into question how new Voter ID laws will be implemented in the case of corporations, as well as, how to ensure the corporate vote reflects an actual vote held by the directors of the corporation.
