Voter ID Registration to be argued before the SCOTUS! Read all about it!

Posted at 12:51 pm under Current Awareness,SCOTUS

On Monday, March 18th, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in Arizona v. The Inter-Tribal Council of Arizona¬†¬†in which, as SCOTUS blog explains, “The new Arizona voting rights case is important not only because of the citizenship proof requirement, but perhaps even more so because it calls on the Court to sort out the cooperative but sometimes conflicting roles of the state governments and Congress in regulating election procedures.”

This will be the first SCOTUS decision on the myriad of Republican-led state initiatives in the 2012 election cycle to impose new voter-ID requirements.

Stay tuned!
