Local R. 56.1(a), Defendants State of Arizona and the Arizona Secretary of State submit this Separate Statement of Facts in support of their Motion for Partial Summary Judgment, which is filed herewith. 1. On November 2, 2004, Arizona voters adopted by ballot initiative Proposition 200 ("Prop 200"). [Decl. of Counsel in Supp. of Mot. For Partial Summary Judgment by Defs. State of Arizona and the Arizona Secretary of State ("Counsel Decl.") Tab 1 (Letter dated December 9, 2004, from Jessica Funkhouser to Joseph Rich, and exhibits A and B thereto)] 2. Sections 3, 4 and 5 of Prop 200 amended Arizona's voting laws in two substantive ways: (1) applicants to register to vote were required to submit proof of U.S. citizenship; and (2) voters who choose to vote in-person at the polls on election day (as opposed to early voters) would be required to present identification. [Counsel Decl. Tab 1 ex. A (Proposition 200 Official Title, An Initiative Measure), at pp. 1-3)] 3. On December 9, 2004, the Arizona Attorney General submitted to the U.S. Department of Justice ("DOJ") a request for preclearance of Sections 3, 4 and 5 of Prop 200. [Counsel Decl. Tab 1 (Letter dated December 9, 2004 from Jessica Funkhouser to Joseph Rich)] 4. The request for preclearance expressly stated, among other things, that Prop 200's amendments would "require applicants registering to vote to provide evidence of United States citizenship with the application." [Counsel Decl. Tab 1 (Letter dated December 9, 2004 from Jessica Funkhouser to Joseph Rich at p. 1)] 5. The preclearance request letter also included an "Analysis by Legislative Council" of Prop 200's amendments to Arizona's voting laws, which analysis expressly stated that the amendments "would require that evidence of United States citizenship be presented by every person to register to vote," and which set forth the forms of identification specified by Prop 200 that would constitute satisfactory evidence of U.S. citizenship. 6. [Counsel Decl. Tab 1 (Letter dated December 9, 2004 from Jessica The submission package to the DOJ comprised many pages and attached Funkhouser to Joseph Rich at p. 2)] 1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 numerous exhibits of information about Prop 200, including copies of the initiative, the laws to be amended by Prop 200, and articles and other public information relating to its passage. [Counsel Decl. Tab 1 (Letter dated December 9, 2004 from Jessica Funkhouser to Joseph Rich, (referencing attached exhibits), and exhibits A and B thereto)] 7. The DOJ precleared (i.e., the voting-related amendments) Sections 3, 4 and 5 of Prop 200 on January 24, 2005. [Counsel Decl. Tab 2 (Letter dated January 24, 2005 from Joseph Rich to Jessica Funkhouser)] 8. Since the inception of the National Voter Registration Act in 1995, Arizona has used and accepted for voter registration the Federal Mail Voter Registration Form (Federal Form), which was developed by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission ("EAC"). [Counsel Decl. Tab 3 (Affidavit of Joseph Kanefield dated May 31, 2006) ("Kanefield Aff.") 2] 9. Following the implementation of Prop 200, Arizona has continued to accept both the Federal Form and Arizona's form for voter registration purposes, although the State requires submission of proof of U.S. citizenship along with whichever application form the registrant submits. [Counsel Decl. Tab 3 (Kanefield Aff.) 2] 10. The Arizona Secretary of State makes the Federal Form available to anyone who requests it, and the form is available for downloading and printing on the EAC's website. [Counsel Decl. Tab 3 (Kanefield Aff.) 4] 11. Most individuals who are eligible to register to vote already possess a driver's license or nonoperating identification card, and thus do not require any other identification to vote. [Counsel Decl. Tab 4 (Deposition of Ronald Anthony Sissons dated August 11, 2006), at 77:15-21)] 12. are free. Many counties send official election mail and voter registration cards and [Counsel Decl.
