Supremes Strike Down Arizona Voting Law

By a 7-2 vote (Alito and Thomas dissenting), the Supreme Court struck down Arizona’s law requiring proof of citizenship to register to vote in a federal election.  They held that the 1993 National Voter Registration Act trumps the more restrictive state law.  The federal law requires that you show I. D. like a driver’s license and sign a statement that you are a citizen.

The ruling will strike down similar laws in Georgia, Alabama, and Kansas.

    This show how much of a far right-wing extremist that Alito really is. Thomas is not a surprise.
