Supremes: No Proof of Citizenship Required to Vote

leave a comment »

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down an Arizona law that required proof of citizenship to vote in addition to what federal law requires.

This was a major victory for minority and civil rights groups who argued that the requirements were an attempt to suppress the vote of citizens and legal immigrants.

The case is Arizona v. Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, Inc., No.  12-71.
