Officials in Kansas and Arizona suing the Federal government to force the U.S. Elections Assistance Commission to modify voter registration forms, allowing states to require proof of citizenship like a passport or birth certificate when people register to vote. Currently, those forms only make ‘would be’ voters take an oath affirming they’re American citizens. The U.S. Supreme Court struck down a provision in Arizona’s law requiring voters provide proof of citizenship; saying a Federal voter registration law takes precedence. Kansas officials insist the high court ruling has no bearing that state’s proof of citizenship law.
