How do you strike down a law requiring proof of citizenship to vote?

Who votes against that??

Supreme Court Justices are violating their own oaths to the Constitution. As with Obama Care, I bet PRISM is at work behind the scenes here.


SNOWDEN, PRISM, AND THE NSA


27 STATEMENTS BY SNOWDEN ON PRISM

The best expose on PRISM now comes from the 40 year career NSA employee, William Benny, who became the Director of Intelligence there under Geroge W. Bush. He has gone public since Snowden and detailed the full capabilities of PRISM and what the NSA was doing.

Former Director of NSA Intelligence reveals the full extent of PRISM capabilities. MUST SEE!

Another William Benny interview about PRISM and the NSA

SCALIA, J., delivered the opinion of the Court, in which ROBERTS,
C. J., and GINSBURG, BREYER, SOTOMAYOR, and KAGAN, JJ., joined, and
in which KENNEDY, J., joined in part. KENNEDY, J., filed an opinion concurring in part and concurring in the judgment. THOMAS, J., and ALITO,
J., filed dissenting opinions.

I thought that how states conduct elections was one of those rights reserved by the state.

In the past, SCOTUS has re-affirmed this on multiple occasions.

In the opinion it says “how” states conduct elections is a right reserved by the state but not “who” can vote in the elections.

This is the case involving Arizona’s requirement that would-be voters provide proof of citizenship before being able to register to vote. Arizona’s proof of citizenship requirement is preempted by the federal law requiring that states use the federal voter registration form. Justice Kennedy concurs in part and in judgment. Justices Thomas and Alito both filed dissenting opinions.

Part of the opinion below..

Arizona is correct that the Elections Clause empowers Congress to regulate how federal elections are held, but not who may vote in them. The latter is the province of the States. See U. S. Const., Art. I, §2, cl. 1; Amdt. 17. It would raise serious constitutional doubts if a federal statute precluded a State from obtaining the information necessary to enforce its voter qualifications.

So then explain how is it constitutional to require voter ID when legally purchasing a gun, which is also my God-given constitutional right?

Proof of that which is already a requirement is a “how”. not a who.

Something really smells here.

Looks like a highly techincal decision without addressing the underlying issue. That said, an aggressive campaign to root out the perjury should fly but will fail on two fronts: the election will have already been stolen and good luck finding the fraudulent voters. It is all moot because those idiots in Congress are in process of declaring everybody citizens.

Supreme Court has affirmed voter ID laws in a few states. Unfortunately, that does not necessarily prove citizenship in all states.

This is the next step in the fall of the U.S.A.

No controls, no requirements to vote, no checks to stop anyone from voting more than one time.

Our next vote will be for a life time “king”

:-(

If you can’t require proof of citizenship iun order to vote what can you require??? What’s to stop anyone in the world from voting wherever and whenever he chooses? I’m just about ready to build a cabin in the woods somewhere and tell the world to f off!

Nonetheless, while the NVRA forbids States to demand that an applicant submit additional information beyond that required by the Federal Form, it does not preclude States from “deny[ing] registration based on information in their possession establishing the applicant’s ineligibility.” Pp. 6–13.

Seems like the way to attack the problem would be to make the I.D. law for STATE elections instead. At that point you have the database available to weed out the fraudulent voters by matching it with a database of those registered to vote in federal elections.

That’s not what the decision said. All the court said that the State of AZ, in federal elections, cannot require more that is asked for on a federally mandated voter registration form. That’s all.

By this logic, there should be nothing requiring proof of citizenship in this country.

Yes, item (c) in the syllabus leaves the door open for Arizona to correct the shortcoming and still accomplish their aim. Like I said, a highly technical decision supporting the Rule of Law without undermining Arizona’s ultimate aim. This is not the total fail it appears to be at first blush.

I was thinking in that direction too but right there on page 2 of the syllabus in item (c) is the opening for Arizona to adjust their process and get the form altered.
