Expert: Citizenship requirement for Arizona voter registration unconstitutional

The Supreme Court heard on Monday the case of Arizona v. Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, in which they were asked if the state can add requirements for voter registration beyond what is called for in federal law.

In this case, whether they can demand documentary proof of citizenship was a central issue. It’s the second case of voter rights the Court is being asked to review this term.

Host Carmen Russell-Sluchansky spoke with Ben Hovland, senior counsel for the Fair Elections Legal Network, to discuss the case.
