So Much for Integrity of Elections

by Mark Krikorian

Continuing the federal jihad against Arizona, the Ninth Circuit has struck down the state’s requirement, passed by voters in 2004, that people registering to vote provide proof of citizenship, based on their interpretation of the Motor Voter Act (it doesn’t apply to next week’s election because registration has already closed). But they let stand the requirement that people show ID when voting. So — Arizona can’t prevent non-citizens from illegally registering, but they can make sure the non-citizens really are who they say they are when showing up at the polls to vote. Sounds like a plan!
