  •  I read recently about a 2-tiered elections system (7+ / 0-)

    being implemented by one of the states (Missouri? Kansas?, sorry I can't provide a link) in which voters who can vote in Federal elections won't necessarily be qualified to vote in state elections if they don't have state-sanctioned (individually determined by each state) voter identification.

    I think this was in response to Obamacare voters being automatically registered to vote in Federal elections.

    Seems it would be pertinent to this diary. Can someone expand on this?

    •  That's associated to ALEC also (5+ / 0-)

      State officials in Arizona and Kansas are developing a new scheme to implement an American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC)-approved bill requiring proof of citizenship at the polls.

      But Arizona and Kansas are now asserting the ruling only applies to federal elections, and are creating "two-tiered" ballots to try thwarting the decision. Voters who showed proof of citizenship to register will be allowed to vote in all local, state, and federal elections. -
