On March 24, the states of Kansas and Arizona asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear Kobach v U.S. Election Assistance Commission, 14-1164. This is the dispute over whether those states can require the federal government to alter the postcard voter registration forms in those two states. The form asks applicants to sign over penalty of perjury that they are U.S. citizens. The two states want the forms altered to tell applicants that they must attach proof of citizenship.
The U.S. District Court in Kansas had ruled in favor of the two states, but the Tenth Circuit had reversed, basing its decision on the fact that the Commission had held extensive fact-finding hearings on whether the change was necessary, and had determined that the change is not necessary.
