In her dissent, which was joined by Justices Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan, Sotomayor pointed out that the U.S. Department of Justice had previously come out in favor of curbside voting as a reasonable accommodation to remedy violations of the ADA, asserting that Alabama has no valid reason for prohibiting the process to those most vulnerable to the pandemic from being forced to vote indoors in a state with no mask requirement.

No valid reason. Significant qualifier, that is.

While the majority did not include the legal reasoning underlying the decision, Justice Sonia Sotomayor penned a brief yet biting dissent to the "shadow docket" ruling.

Can someone explain to me why this is allowable? Shouldn't everyone be given the opportunity to understand why the justices ruled the way they did?

Alabama - Where the women are ugly and the livestock is nervous. Knock those disabled into their place. Alabama state bird is the horse-fly. What smells bad in Mississippi blows in from Alabama.

Good! No reason for curb-side voting. Isn't the ADA supposed to have regulations on the facilities themselves to accommodate disabled people so they can get into the actual building? That's what needs to be discussed here. Not just allowing people to drop a vote anywhere they want and expect it to be counted.

Republicans are so afraid that people (who are not Republicans) will vote.

Oh no!

How will Biden ever win the election without Alabama?

Solid Red Alabama.

The fact such a red state is worried about voter results really exemplifies how republicans are only in power due to cheating and voter suppression.
