The Arizona bill is rather foolish in my opinion. It says in part;
An original long form birth certificate that includes the date and place of birth, the names of the hospital and the attending physician and signatures of the witnesses in attendance.
This law could ban anyone from being placed on the ballot in that state. The only people that have the original BC are the hospitals or other legal entities in the State. Everyone else gets certified copies. The forms that new parents sometimes get with the babies foot prints on the bottom are normally souvenirs, not legal documents. The sponsors need to change this to certified copy or something like that.
The Connecticut bill is just as poorly written as the Arizona bill.
That title 9 of the general statutes be amended to require the Secretary of the State to be presented with an original birth certificate of any candidate for the federal office of president or vice-president that certifies that the certificate holder is a natural-born United States citizen, prior to certifying that the candidate is qualified to appear on the ballot.
The Georgia bill says;
shall provide original documentation to the Secretary of State for its candidate for the office of President of the United States that he meets the qualifications of Article 2, Section 1, Paragraph 1 and Article 2, Section 1, Paragraph 5 of the United States Constitution to serve as President of the United States
I wonder if the Secretary of State would accept a certified copy of a BC or other legal form of BC issued by a state? The bill does not define the words "original documentation" as it is used in the text.
The Indiana bill is much better;
Requires a candidate for the office of President of the United States to certify that the candidate has the qualifications provided in Article 2, Section 1, clause 5 of the Constitution of the United States (qualifications), and to submit with the candidate's declaration of candidacy or request that the candidate's name be placed on the primary ballot a certified copy of the candidate's birth certificate, including any other documentation necessary to establish that the candidate meets the qualifications.
The computer printouts that most state issue would probably meet these requirements.
The Nebraska bill has issues also
;(i) A certified copy of my first original long-form birth
certificate issued shortly after the time of my birth; or
(ii) Only if the document described in subdivision (i) of
this subdivision is not obtainable under the laws of the state that
issued my birth certificate, then both documents described in
subdivisions (A) and (B) of this subdivision:
(A) A certified copy of my certification of live birth
which includes the names of my birth parents who are listed on my
first original long-form birth certificate issued shortly after the
time of my birth; and
(B) A sworn and acknowledged affidavit by me stating that
my parents names contained on my certification of live birth are the
same birth parent names as contained on my first original birth
But it also says something which goes beyond what the Constitution of the USA requires.
Such person shall submit an affidavit to the Secretary
of State along with supporting documentation as specified in
subsections (5) and (6) of this section by September 8 of the year in
which the election is scheduled. The affidavit and supporting
documentation shall be a public record.
(5) The affidavit shall be sworn or affirmed before a
notary public and shall contain statements substantially as follows:
I was born a citizen of the United States of America and
was subject exclusively to the jurisdiction of the United States of
America, owing allegiance to no other country at the time of my
birth. On the day I was born, both my birth mother and birth father
were citizens of the United States of America.
A natural born citizen does not need to have both US citizen parents.
The Maine bill says
A candidate for nomination by primary election shall show proof of United States citizenship in the form of a certified copy of the candidate's birth certificate and the candidate's driver's license or other government-issued identification to the Secretary of State.
Hawaii law says that the certification of live birth that was provided by Obama is sufficient as a birth certificate. There are currently no laws that I know of that dispute this.
