LUCHA v. Hobbs: U.S. District Court for Arizona – Plaintiffs’ Amended Complaint

On July 18, the plaintiffs amended their complaint against Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs challenging H.B. 2492 and H.B. 2243, an extreme anti-voter law that imposes documentary proof of residence and citizenship requirements on voter registration, discriminates against naturalized U.S. citizens, Native Americans, Latinos and members of other racial and language minority communities, and strips certain voters of the right to vote in presidential elections and by mail. The amended complaint adds claims under the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) and Voting Rights Act, includes new plaintiffs, the San Carlos Apache Tribe, Inter Tribal Council of Arizona and Arizona Coalition for Change, and adds a challenge to H.B. 2243.
