Court will hear Arizona case on voter registration

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 04:18 a.m. HST, Oct 15, 2012

WASHINGTON » The Supreme Court will take up an appeal from Arizona over its requirement that people prove they are American citizens before registering to vote.

The justices today said they will review lower federal court rulings that blocked the law.

Those courts said that federal law trumps the Arizona requirement. Federal law allows voters to fill out a mail-in voter registration card and swear they are citizens under penalty of perjury, but it doesn't require them to show proof as Arizona's 2004 law does.

This is scary. The Supreme Court to rule? It was the Supreme Court ruling that resulted in the formation of super rich SuperPacs that are trying to buy this year's election.
