U.S. Supreme Court Takes No Action Yet on Arizona Voter Registration Case

The U.S. Supreme Court did not take any action on Monday, June 25, in Arizona v Gonzalez, 11A-1189. This is the case over whether Arizona can supplement the federal voter registration form with extra questions. The state wants information that is not requested on the federal form; specifically the state wants proof that the applicant is a citizen. The Court will probably take some action on Thursday, June 28, because that is the last day the Court sits, until October.

The Ninth Circuit had ruled against the state, and the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to say whether the Ninth Circuit’s action should be stayed, during the next few months, during the period in which the state will be asking the Supreme Court to hear its appeal.
