WICHITA, Kan. — Several Arizona groups want to join a lawsuit opposing
efforts by Kansas and Arizona to force a federal agency to help the states’
enforce their proof-of-citizenship rules for new voters.
A motion to intervene was filed Wednesday in federal court in Wichita by the
Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, the Arizona Advocacy Network, League of United
Latin American Citizens of Arizona and Arizona state Sen. Steve Gallardo.
Kansas and Arizona are seeking a preliminary injunction at a Dec. 13 hearing to
force the U.S. Election Assistance Commission to modify a national voter
The groups contend the states want to undo a victory they won before the U.S.
Supreme Court this year. The court ruled states can’t demand proof of
citizenship from people registering to vote in federal elections.
