WASHINGTON, D.C., June 17, 2013 – Alliance for Justice President Nan Aron released the following statement today in response to the Supreme Court decision in Arizona et. al. v. Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, et. al.:

We are pleased that the majority recognizes the will of Congress in providing a simple and efficient means of registering to vote that removes barriers for Americans across the country in reaching the polls. The majority wisely prohibited Arizona from imposing new burdens on the right to vote that are inconsistent with clear federal law.

Key aspects of this case are discussed, with excerpts from the oral arguments, here.
