Honest Elections Project Action Reacts to Arizona HB2492 Passage

Jason Snead, Executive Director of Honest Elections Project Action 

“The Arizona legislature should be applauded for taking action and passing HB2492. Only citizens should vote in American elections. Requiring proof of citizenship to register is a fundamental safeguard for the integrity of elections, and states should be doing all they can to verify citizenship and ensure that the votes of citizens are not canceled out by ineligible voters. This measure makes proof of citizenship a qualification to vote in state and presidential elections, avoiding issues raised in the Supreme Court’s Inter-Tribal decision. This voter integrity bill is necessary, timely, reasonable, and constitutional, and it upholds the principle of making it easier to vote but harder to cheat. I hope the governor moves quickly to sign it into law.”
