Arizona Citizenship Requirement Challenge (DOJ)

United States v. Arizona

Lawsuit filed by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) challenging Arizona’s proof of citizenship requirement in House Bill 2492. This law requires Arizonans using federal registration forms to provide documents proving their citizenship and requires election officials to provide the Arizona attorney general with a list of voters who do not provide satisfactory proof of citizenship for investigation. The DOJ asks the federal district court in Arizona to block the enforcement of H.B. 2492, alleging that the proof of citizenship scheme violates Section 6 of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) of 1993 and Sections 4 and 5 of H.B. 2492 violate the Materiality Provision of Section 101 of the Civil Rights Act.
