It is hereby ORDERED that panel rehearing is granted. Pursuant to Third Circuit I.O.P. 9.5.1, any petition for rehearing is presumed to include a request for panel rehearing.
The Court will hear oral argument at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, September 20, 2011, with fifteen minutes allocated to each side. At oral argument, the parties should be prepared to address the following three questions:
(1) Can a person be a citizen of two states?
(2) What are the requirements of California law for a person to vote in that State?
(3) To what extent can a federal court interpret a state constitution?
If the parties wish, they may submit simultaneous written statements by 6:00 p.m. on Monday, September 19, 2011. In granting panel rehearing, the Court's order filed September 13 is vacated; provided, however, that Mr. Lewis will remain on the ballot until further order of the Court.
By the Court,
