High court to decide on voter proof of citizenship

Tougher Arizona rule conflicts with federal law

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court agreed on Monday to decide whether Arizona may require proof of citizenship in order to register to vote in federal elections. The federal appeals court in San Francisco had blocked the state law, saying it conflicted with a federal one.

The Supreme Court will hear arguments in the case early next year, and the law will remain suspended until then.
