United States v. State of Arizona


On July 5, 2022, the Department filed a complaint against the State of Arizona.  The complaint alleges that House Bill 2492 (2022) violates Section 6 of the National Voter Registration Act of 1995 by requiring that applicants produce documentary proof of citizenship before they can vote in presidential elections or vote by mail in any federal election when they register to vote using the uniform federal registration form created by the NVRA.  The complaint also contends that it violates Section 101 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by requiring election officials to reject voter registration forms based on errors or omissions that are not material to establishing a voter’s eligibility to cast a ballot.
