Claiming disenfranchisement of a “substantial’’ number of voters, the Arizona Democratic Party wants U.S. District Court Judge Steven Logan to order election officials to reopen the registration rolls.
Attorneys for the party contend Secretary of State Michele Reagan acted illegally in refusing to direct county election officials to extend the deadline through Oct. 11.
The actual deadline set by statute is 29 days before the Nov. 8 election. That fell on Oct. 10.
