In the wake of the Supreme Court’s gutting of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and a separate ruling tossing out Arizona’s “proof of citizenship” law, Arizona and Kansas have adopted separate voter registration systems for federal and state/local elections, the latter requiring proof of citizenship. Look at it as Jim Crow 2.0.

Democrats, Especially, Struggle to Register New Voters
