Supreme Court Rejects Arizona Voter Registration Rule
It required would-be voters to prove they are U.S. citizens before they can use a federal registration system designed to make it easier to sign up to vote. Arizona officials say the law is needed to keep non-Americans from voting in elections. But opponents saw it as an attack on minorities, immigrants and the elderly. By a 7-2 vote, the justices today tossed out the Arizona law.
