Federal Judge Upholds Ariz. Law Requiring Voters To Provide Proof Of Citizenship

• One America News

"Considering the evidence as a whole, the court concludes that Arizona's interests in preventing non-citizens from voting and promoting public confidence in Arizona's elections outweighs the limited burden voters might encounter when required to provide [documentary proof of citizenship]," Bolton wrote.

The Justice Department, the Democratic National Committee and voting rights groups challenged the law. They claimed that it would make voter registration more difficult and that it is racially discriminatory.
