Supreme Court Will Hear Voter Registration Case

Today’s decision by the Supreme Court to hear Arizona’s case on voter registration requirements comes as great news to many, including Secretary of State Ken Bennett who promised to defend Arizona’s Proposition 200 all the way to the United States Supreme Court.

Proposition 200, when passed by Arizona voters in 2004, required that voter registration applicants provide documentary proof of citizenship. In addition it required that voters provide proof of identity at the polls on Election Day.

We are very happy that the Supreme Court decided to hear our case.  In our view, citizenship is the foundation from which eligibility is derived.

The National Voter Rights Act specifically talks about establishing citizenship and we feel strongly that our law is constitutional and look forward to presenting our case to the nation’s highest court.
