Arizona Citizenship Requirement Challenge (Poder Latinx)

Poder Latinx v. Hobbs

Lawsuit filed on behalf of Poder Latinx challenging Arizona’s proof of citizenship law, 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 plaintiff alleges that the challenged provisions of the law — including the citizenship investigation scheme and the documentary proof of residence requirement — violate the 14th Amendment’s Equal Protection and Due Process Clauses. The plaintiff requests that the court prevent the enforcement of the challenged provisions of the law. This case was consolidated with Mi Familia Vota v. Hobbs, where all future filings can be found.
