Kansas, Arizona Seek Court Order On Voter Citizenship Laws

KSCB News - October 23, 2013 9:16 pm

Kansas and Arizona are asking a court to force a federal agency to quickly modify voter registration forms so the states can fully enforce proof-of-citizenship laws for all new voters.

The two states filed a request Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Kansas for a preliminary injunction in a lawsuit they filed against the federal Election Assistance Commission and its top staff member. They asked for a hearing by or shortly after Nov. 12

The states want to force the commission to modify the national mail-in voter registration form to include specific proof-of-citizenship instructions for residents of Kansas and Arizona.

Officials of the states argued that they’re being forced to create separate registration systems for federal and other elections.

The U.S. Justice Department is representing the commission.
