How can proof of citizenship be illegal and yet you are asked for your social security number all the time. Not that I agree with it but shouldnt the states be allowed to set their own criteria for voting in their state.

What exactly is considered proof of citizenship in Arizona anyway?

A law would be great an amendment even better. Every American citizen of legal age has a right to vote. No exceptions.

Arizona can require proof of citizenship for a state issued photo ID and they can require that ID be used to register to vote.

The sweet thing about that is that it is required by federal law.

American Citizens should have the right to vote. But how do you proove one is a US citizen? The states do have rights as do the citizens that do not want to show proof of citizenship.

How exactly do you verify an United States Citizen is voting-in detail.

SCOTUS ruled that ANY ONE, no matter their Nationality, can VOTE if they just show up at the polling place no questions asked. It was the Courts decision to END America's National Sovereignty in preparation for the Open Border Amnesty.

The agenda driven politically appointed and approved 'supreme' court justices keep on getting in the way. As do the clerks and aides they delegate to.

What ever happend to states rights?

Something isn't right because the court said the states COULD add requirements to processes like voter registration with the federal government and courts permission-HUH? So the something like the proof of citizenship requirement could come and go with administrations.

Also relies on the honor system ie the form that is signed saying you are telling the truth under penalty of law. What law. Voter Registration is now lawless. The form used to register to vote is no better than those tags on your bed or furniture that say do not remove under penalty of law.

Sounds like the jokester justices had a frivilous academic classroom debate if that and said this is how we are going to rule. Still think their younger clerks and aides pulled some influence if they were blackmailed or paying off political favors.

But again where are states rights.

Europe, Canada, Mexico, India: every other industrialized democracy has voter identification.

Why is the United States lagging behind?

What the state of Arizona is doing here is progressive.

The agenda people have spun voter FRAUD: a CRIMINAL act into an academic debate about voting rights and voter suppression. They don't care about the integrity of the system. The public can't differentiate between an academic debate and reality.

Since the system is made up of elected professional politicians they will do nothing to change the system. Same for the jokester justices, they have status in the current system. They also have exposure to political blackmail. A career oriented political appointee will not risk their jobs or status. It's all about them.

It was shocking that Two Justices who we thought respected America would have voted with the Five who have no gratitude for the blessings of being American or concern for our childrens' future????

Classify it any way you want.

I don't think the Supreme Court would interfere with Arizona conforming to the REAL ID Act.
