The Supreme Court ruled Monday that the federal government can pre-empt a state and require that it use a national voter registration form, in a decision that punctured part of Arizona's far-reaching voter-check laws.
Tough new election laws aimed at forcing voters in many states to show photo identification at polling places have been blocked or delayed, delighting mostly Democratic opponents who claim they were among a variety of partisan attempts to keep minorities from voting.
"Voters scored a huge victory today," said Wendy Weiser, an official with the Brennan Center for Justice. "We applaud the Supreme Court for confirming Congress' power to protect the right to vote in federal elections."
