PHOENIX (AP) – A federal appeals court on Friday rejected an attempt
to halt enforcement of an Arizona law that requires voters to show
identification before casting a ballot and submit proof of
citizenship when registering to vote.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a trial judge’s refusal
last year to block the requirement while a legal challenge awaits
trial in federal court in Phoenix.
“Now we know we get to enforce the law while the lawsuit is pending,”
state Solicitor General Mary O’Grady said.
