Washington Post: U.S. Appeals Court Leaves Proof-of-Citizenship Voting Requirement to Federal Panel

The Washington Post reports that the same U.S. appeals court panel that issued a preliminary injunction earlier this month barring Kansas, Alabama, and Georgia from adding a proof-of-citizenship requirement to a federal voter registration form released a new opinion on Monday ruling that federal law leaves it to a federal elections agency—not the states—to determine whether such a change is necessary. The panel wrote that the citizenship requirement "unquestionably" hinders voter registration groups ahead of the November elections, and that there was "precious little" evidence of voter fraud by noncitizens.
