Washington, D.C. – Today the Election Transparency Initiative celebrated the passage of legislation helping ensure fair, transparent, and secure Arizona elections. The bill is now headed to Governor Doug Ducey’s desk to be signed.
Introduced by Representative Jake Hoffman (R), H.B. 2792 prohibits an election officer from mass-mailing early, unrequested ballots and provides that early ballots may be requested beginning 93 days before an election. The bill provides for criminal penalties to enforce its provisions.
National Chairman of the Election Transparency Initiative and former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli praised Arizona’s leadership in a statement:
“We are grateful for the continued leadership, persistence and commitment of Rep. Hoffman and the Arizona state legislature to deliver fairer, more transparent and secure elections for the people of Arizona. Americans have the right to be confident that it is easy to vote and hard to cheat in our elections, but many disenfranchised voters have lost trust and confidence that our system ensures every legal voter’s voice can be heard fairly and equally. Now more than ever, it is incumbent on conservative legislators to help repair the confidence and certainty of the nation, and we urge Governor Ducey to sign this bill into law without delay.”
The Election Transparency Initiative, a partnership between American Principles Project (APP) and the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List), was organized to combat H.R. 1/S. 1 and advocate for state-based election reforms that voters can trust.
