iVoterGuide: Elections Have Ripple Effects—Including Political Appointments

iVoterGuide President Debbie Wuthnow: Fate of Judiciary Often Lies with the Election of Officials, from President to Governor

June 8, 2020

AUSTIN, Texas—Worshippers returning to church amid COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions has been a much-debated topic, and is now spilling over into the legal and political realm.

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts is quickly becoming the wild-card swing vote on many issues, including rulings regarding church gatherings as health concerns loom.

iVoterGuide is pointing to the recent SCOTUS rejection of an emergency appeal from a California church challenging state limits on attendance at religious services. In his opinion, Roberts wrote that the restrictions of 25% capacity with no more than 100 worshippers at a time “appear consistent” with the First Amendment.

“As Justice Roberts continues to swing from siding with conservatives to siding with liberals, we’re reminded of the ripple effect of elections—political appointments,” said iVoterGuide President Debbie Wuthnow. “The fate of the judiciary often lies with the election of other officials, from president to governor. iVoterGuide helps voters around the country find candidates who align with the issues most important to them—and who will make appointments in line with those values.”
