Barnum & Bailey's 9th Circus Rolls On

Citizenship required to vote?

Not in the West!!

A three-judge panel of the court said the proof-of- citizenship requirement conflicted with the intent of the federal law aiming to increase voter registration by streamlining the process with a single form and removing state- imposed obstacles to registration.

The federal law requires applicants to “attest to their citizenship under penalty of perjury” without requiring documentary proof, the panel said.

“Proposition 200 creates an additional state hurdle to registration,” the judges said.

And some wonder why the 10th Amendment is so......ahhh.......popular these days.

Impeachment. Refusing to uphold the law and the Constitution.
