Supreme Court’s Arizona Voting Law Decision Leads To Pundit Reactions On Twitter


Arizona Voter Law Shot Down By Supreme Court

The Supreme Court’s Arizona Voting law decision on Monday ruled that states cannot on their own require would-be voters to further prove they are U.S. citizens before using a federal registration system that was setup to make voter registration easier for everyone.

In a 7-2 decision the justices threw out Arizona’s voter-approved requirement. Under the states system voters need to fully document their citizenship by way of a registration form that is produced under the federal “Motor Voter” voter registration law.

In the court’s majority decision Justice Antonin Scalia writes that federal law “precludes Arizona from requiring a federal form applicant to submit information beyond that required by the form itself.”

Immediately following the Supreme Court’s Arizona voting law decision Twitter blew up with responses from pundits. Here are some of the responses that the Supreme Court decision elicited:

Political activist and reporting group Latino Political Ave adds:

The House Democrats Caucus account on Twitter leaves us with this final reaction:

The Supreme Courts Arizona voting law decision will not stop states from attempting to make voting in America harder, but it will generate plenty of discussion on both sides of the issue.

Do you think the Supreme Court made the right decision in terms of states and how they can approach federal voting?
