DES MOINES (AP) — The attorney for one of a handful of Iowa residents charged for allegedly registering to vote when they weren't U.S. citizens is focusing on a small technicality. Something too small, he argues.

David Richter said Thursday that under state law, Iowa's voter registration form must have the same size and color of font throughout. But he argues that the text is smaller in the section of the form where residents are asked to sign their names to certify their U.S. citizenship.
