The Supreme Court has ruled that a South Carolina law requiring witnesses to sign mail-in ballots will be in effect on Nov. 3. 

The law was challenged by a group of voters and the state's Democratic Party. 

They argued the measure could endanger people and lead to a decrease in the number of people who vote.
