Attorney General Tom Horne to Defend Arizona's Voter Integrity Law in U.S. Supreme Court

Horne Holding Rally Wednesday, March 13, on Voter Registration and Proof of Citizenship

PHOENIX – When voters passed Proposition 200 in 2004 to require proof of citizenship to register to vote, little did they suspect the issue would land in the nation's highest court -- nine years later.

Arizona's Attorney General Tom Horne will hold a rally to address supporters regarding the law and his fight to defend it. The event will be Wednesday, March 13 at 6:15 pm at the offices of the Arizona Project, 3375 E. Shea Boulevard, Suite 2B, in Phoenix.

Horne is traveling next week to Washington, D.C. to personally argue the constitutionality of the "Arizona Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act" which passed in 2004 as Proposition 200. It requires voters to provide proof of citizenship when registering to vote and was approved by voters with a margin of more than 11 percent.

"Arizona's Attorney General is defending this voter-approved law all the way to the U. S. Supreme Court," said Robert Graham, Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party. "The Republican Party is proud that our Republican Attorney General Tom Horne is working on behalf of all voters to defend our state laws and protect our right to vote."

The Arizona Republican Party will soon announce an aggressive new voter registration program and is well-prepared to assist new voters. Currently less than 75% of eligible voters in Arizona are registered to vote.
