Judge Rules in Favor of Kansas and Arizona for Voter Proof-of-Citizenship Requirement

U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren in Wichita, Kan., ruled on Wednesday that Federal officials are to assist Kansas and Arizona in enforcing proof-of-citizenship to register as a voter.

This requires new voters to provide a birth certificate, passport or other documentation to election officials in order to prove their citizenship. Current federal forms only require someone to declare they are a citizen.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach said to The Associated Press, “This is a really big victory, not just for Kansas and Arizona but for all 50 states. Kansas has paved the way for all states to enact proof-of-citizenship requirements.”

Opponents claim that this is voter suppression, and that Republicans are the driving force.
