Arizona’s top election official said Wednesday that the coronavirus outbreak was going to make voting by mail an important option for the state’s upcoming primary.
“We know that vote by mail works. It’s safe, especially now that we are in the middle of a pandemic,” Secretary of State Katie Hobbs said on KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Arizona’s Morning News.
Primary Election Day is Aug. 4. The last day to register to vote in the primary was Monday.
Hobbs said warnings of mail-in voting fraud were “misinformation” and that the state’s process was secure.
“All of these cries of ‘foul’ are just not accurate,” she said.
