It would also attempt to end voter fraud by requiring voters to prove they're U.S. citizens. It has "widespread support across party lines" in the poll conducted by the newspaper. According to the poll, "Republicans favor the measure by an 8-1 ratio and Democrats favor it by an almost 3-1 ratio." And, "91 percent of those surveyed favored Proposition 200's requirement that individuals submit evidence of U.S. citizenship when registering to vote."
The article also lists a few of the organizations opposed to PAN:
Arizona Chamber of Commerce
Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association
Arizona Interfaith Network
Phoenix Firefighters Union
Service Employees International Union
This is good news on the poll, but it's bad news on the Left and Right working against the rest of us front. Note that John McCain is also going to be an anti-PAN spokesman.
