Today the U.S. Supreme Court struck down by a 7-2 margin an Arizona law requiring proof of citizenship before registering to vote. The court’s opinion was authored by Justice Scalia, with Justice Alito and Justice Thomas dissenting. The court held that Arizona must accept and use a federal form (which does not require separate proof of citizenship) to register voters for federal elections. The case is Arizona v. Inter Tribal Council, No. 12-71.
