Schultz appeals voting rule to Iowa Supreme Court

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz is asking the Iowa Supreme Court to review and overturn a district court judge's decision that Schultz did not have the authority to create a new rule aimed at ridding voter registration rolls of voters who didn't appear to be U.S. citizens.

Polk County Judge Scott Rosenberg last month said state law does not authorize Schultz to create a rule that would cancel a voter's registration based on citizenship questions.

Schultz tried to pass a rule that would have removed voters from registration rolls if he could not confirm their citizenship by comparing state records with federal immigration records.

Schultz says he can't allow non-citizens to cancel out Iowans' votes and insists the rule protects the integrity of the vote.
