The Case: Arizona vs. The Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, Inc.

Voter ID laws in many states became a focal point of the 2012 election, with critics claiming they were intended to suppress the votes of minorities, the elderly and low-income individuals. In Arizona vs. The Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, Inc., the Supreme Court will rule on the legality of an Arizona law that requires anyone registering to vote in the state to prove that they are U.S. citizens, potentially violating the National Voter Registration Act (1993).
