Attorney General Mark Brnovich is asking the Arizona Supreme Court to force Tucson to align its local elections with regular state balloting.
The lawsuit filed Wednesday follows a conclusion by Brnovich in July that cities have no legal right to maintain their own election dates when turnout is low.
Tucson officials disagree and have refused to budge. So now the attorney general hopes to force the issue.
But it remains to be seen whether Brnovich will have any better luck in court than he had before
