    Illegal. It explicitly said that Arizona is free to require proof of cotizenship in connection with its state-specific voter registration forms.

    The Court said it's illegal for Arizona to refuse to accept the standard federal form.

    •  So...help me understand (0+ / 0-)

      There seems to be a LOT of confusion about the exact nature of the Supreme Court ruling.

      Arizona can keep its form, but it has to accept the federal form.

      But states get to determine WHO is eligible to vote, so how does that work?

      Arizona can keep using their "useless" state form, but have to accept the federal form?

      What sense does that make? The state form becomes good for what, wallpaper?

      What separates us, divides us, and diminishes the human spirit.
