Statement from Secretary Kemp on Supreme Court Ruling Arizona v. Inter Tribal Council of Arizona
Secretary Brian Kemp issued the following statement regarding 12-71, Arizona v. InterTribal Council of Arizona, Inc.:
President Ronald Reagan said, “Trust, but verify.” This is exactly what Georgia’s voter registration laws provide for. In order to vote in an election, citizenship is required. Georgia requires that this is proven at the time of registration. Rather than causing an undue burden, this requirement ensures the integrity of our voting process. I am very disappointed in the decision that the US Supreme Court made today. I will work closely with Governor Deal, the General Assembly and Attorney General Olens to make sure that we continue to provide a safe, secure and legal system for voter registration as we move forward.
