Preclearance of voting laws now irrational

The U.S. Supreme Court will soon rule on a portion of federal law affecting Arizonans in ways you have not imagined.

Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act requires that certain states preclear with the U.S. Department of Justice any changes - no matter how minor - that affect voting. As my office explained in a friend of the court brief, preclearance for Arizona is irrational.

The case is brought by Alabama, with several other states joining Arizona’s brief.
