Arizona should not be forced to give voters a chance to “cure” the fact that they forgot to sign the envelopes holding their ballots before dropping them in the mail, Attorney General Mark Brnovich contends.

In new legal filings Monday, Brnovich, told U.S. District Court Judge Douglas Rayes he should reject the bid by the state and national Democratic parties to give people who didn’t sign their ballot envelopes five business days after Election Day to come in and fix the problem.

Brnovich said that Arizona is one of the easiest states for people to cast ballots. That ranges from allowing people to register online to the fact that people can vote early without needing an excuse.

And he called this lawsuit an “attempt (by Democrats) to invalidate or alter duly-enacted laws for their own electoral benefit,” noting they want the change to take effect for this year’s election.

But the Democrats contend its only fair.
