The Biden administration announced this week it is suing the state of Arizona for requiring proof of US citizenship to vote. While voting as a non-citizen is illegal under US federal law, the Justice Department has argued that asking for proof of citizenship is “Unlawful and unnecessary.”
Arizona’s law, signed by republican governor Doug Ducey in March, would require voters to show documentary proof of citizenship – such as a state driving license or id card – before casting their ballot, and task county officials with rejecting voter registration applications that don’t include proof of citizenship. The law would apply retroactively to voters who are already registered.
The government’s lawsuit alleges that these restrictions violate the national voter registration act and the civil rights act. It is widely known, votes counted in the last election include dead people and non-existing people. So I wonder if this new “Spin” on voting rights includes only dead people who were buried on US soil or people who don’t actually exist, but if they did, would have to been “Fictitiously created by American citizens”.
We all know elections are actually selections and your votes, citizens, or otherwise are just a show to make you feel like you participate in government.
