PHOENIX (KGUN9-TV) - Attorney General Tom Horne will defend Arizona's voter registration law before the Federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals tomorrow.
The hearing will take place in Pasadena, Ca. and is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. Horne will stand before an 11-member judge panel. The Ninth Circuit chose to do a review after a three-judge panel ruled that Arizona cannot require voters to prove their citizenship in the Gonzales v. State of Arizona case.
"It is vital to the integrity of our election process that only citizens are allowed to vote," Horne said. "Arizona voters approved the law that requires anyone who wants to vote to provide information showing they are citizens. Arizona voters expect that their votes will not be diluted by non-citizens and that the integrity of the process will be preserved. That is why I am passionate about defending this law."
