Judge rejects Arizona Republican Party effort to eliminate most mail-in voting


 A Superior Court judge in Mohave County on Monday rejected a bid by the Arizona Republican Party to eliminate most mail-in voting in the upcoming general election.

“Is the Arizona Legislature prohibited by the Arizona Constitution from enacting voting laws that include no-excuse mail-in voting? The answer is no,” Judge Lee F. Jantzen wrote in his ruling.

The Arizona Republican Party filed the complaint against the Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, each of the state’s 15 county recorders and the state itself, arguing that mass voting by mail is inconsistent with the Arizona Constitution’s requirement for a secret ballot.

The motion was filed in Mohave County based on the fact that Kelli Ward, chairwoman of the Arizona GOP, lives there.

Nearly 75% of Arizona voters want option to vote by mail, poll finds

Jantzen heard arguments from both sides on Friday.
