 Arizona state Sen. Paul Boyer explained Tuesday why he doesn’t always vote with his fellow Republicans on election-related bills.

Boyer told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s The Mike Broomhead Show some of the legislation he opposes was “mislabeled” as promoting voter integrity, while other proposals could have unintended consequences.

“Anything that deals with voter ID or cleaning up the voter rolls, I’m 100% on board with,” said Boyer, who chose not to seek reelection this year.

“But anything that makes it harder to implement the election process, then I’m not going to support.”

He pointed to a stalled proposal to eliminate early voting and tabulating machines and require ballots to be counted by hand by 9 p.m. on Election Day, something elections officials have said would be impossible, especially in large counties.
