Mayor Greg Stanton released the following statement today about the U.S. Supreme Court decision regarding voting rights:

“At a time when Phoenix has a growing and more diverse population, we should be doing more to protect civil rights, including voting rights.  Today's Supreme Court decision is a step in the wrong direction. It strikes down a measure that passed the Senate with bipartisan support.  I urge Congress to update the Voting Rights Act in a way that secures every American's right to vote.”
