Holding: As applied to applicants who use a uniform federal form that merely requires them to aver, under penalty of perjury, that they are U.S. citizens, Arizona’s requirement that would-be voters provide actual proof of U.S. citizenship is pre-empted by the National Voter Registration Act's mandate that states “accept and use” the federal form.
Plain English Summary:
Judgment: Affirmed, 7-2, in an opinion by Justice Scalia on June 17, 2013. Justice Kennedy filed an opinion concurring in part and concurring in the judgment. Justice Thomas and Justice Alito filed dissenting opinions.
