Arizona voters who head to the polls in this year’s elections will be required to provide proof of U.S. citizenship before they will be handed a ballot.
A federal court ruled on March 19 that the Election Assistance Commission exceeded its authority in denying Arizona the right to enforce its law that requires voters to provide proof of citizenship, and ordered the commission to help enforce Arizona’s voter identification laws.
According to Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne, election fraud is a serious problem in the state and this ruling will help ensure that only Arizona residents vote in Arizona elections.
