• HOUSTON, TX. -- June 29, 2015: True the Vote (TTV), the nation's leading voters’ rights and election integrity organization, today released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to deny certiorari for the noncitizen voter registration case, Kobach, et al. v. Election Assistance Commission, et al. (Case nos. 14-3062, 14-3072).

    The plaintiffs originally sought permission to require individuals in Arizona and Kansas utilizing the federal voter registration form to provide proof of U.S. citizenship when applying. An amicus brief filed by the Public Interest Legal Foundation relied on True the Vote’s research to demonstrate how current mechanisms were failing to block admitted noncitizens from voter registration.

    “This Supreme Court development is only a brief setback in the greater cause for improving citizenship verification mechanisms in voter registration,” True the Vote Founder Catherine Engelbrecht said. “With the judicial option taken off the table for now, states can now focus on truly owning their data as they serve resident citizens. Improved data ownership means embracing technologies readily available which verify customer inputs in real time. This new approach also requires improved information sharing between state agencies – with citizens holding all parties accountable.

    “Today’s decision is yet another reminder that if citizens demand improved election integrity, they must first look to themselves,” Engelbrecht continued. “ True the Vote will continue to lead the effort toward a more trustworthy and engaging election experience for all.”

  • “First of all, I think it’s demagoguery, and secondly, if she wants to sue somebody, let her sue New York,” Mr. Kasich, who is weighing a run for president in 2016, said on Fox News. “In Ohio, we got like 27 days of early voting, OK? Twenty-seven days, a couple hundred hours, and in New York, the only early voting — there is none. The only voting that occurs is on election day — what is she talking about?  Washington Times
