Kansas and Arizona ask U.S. Supreme Court to Hear Lawsuit on Federal Voter Registration Form
(from: Ballot Access News @ March 26, 2015, 08:52 PM)

On March 24, the states of Kansas and Arizona asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear Kobach v U.S. Election Assistance Commission, 14-1164.  This is the dispute over whether those states can require the federal government to alter the postcard voter registration forms in those two states.  The form asks applicants to sign over penalty of perjury that they are U.S. citizens.  The two states want the forms altered to tell applicants that they must attach proof of citizenship.

The U.S. District Court in Kansas had ruled in favor of the two states, but the Tenth Circuit had reversed, basing its decision on the fact that the Commission had held extensive fact-finding hearings on whether the change was necessary, and had determined that the change is not necessary.

(from: Independent Political Report @ March 26, 2015, 07:57 PM)

By John Ceballos at theledger.com:

FROSTPROOF | For someone who is running for a seat on Frostproof’s City Council, Martin Sullivan has a somewhat surprising answer when asked what he thinks its role should be.

“When people ask me, ‘What should the city of Frostproof government do?’ my automatic response is, “As little as possible,” said Sullivan, who volunteers some of his time with the Libertarian Party of Polk.

(from: Independent Political Report @ March 26, 2015, 05:59 PM)


Wes Benedict

Wes Benedict has posted this blog post to list state LP conventions for 2015. The list both here at IPR and at LP.org is being periodically updated as we learn of more state convention announcements. I posted this previously but I’m reposting it separately to A) reset the comments (while preserving them) – the issues that led rise to discussions in the previous post’s comment section now have their own articles where they can be discussed, and B) break out Wes Benedict’s offer to speak at state conventions into a separate post.… Read more ...
