Liberal groups sue over Arizona election law that they say allows ‘targeted voter suppression’

By Ray Stern | The Arizona Republic

Liberal voting-advocacy groups filed a federal complaint against Arizona on Monday over an election law they claim will “chill” voter registration and allow “targeted voter suppression.” 

The lawsuit by Voto Latino, Priorities USA and the Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans is the second challenge this week against new, Republican-created state voting laws aimed at shoring up alleged election security problems.

Also on Monday, the Democratic National Committee and Arizona Democratic Party filed the fifth lawsuit targeting House Bill 2492, which tightens the state’s proof-of-citizenship requirements for registering to vote. That law already faces lawsuits in federal court by multiple voting advocacy groups and the U.S. Department of Justice.

Republican lawmakers introduced more than 100 bills this year that covered a wide range of purported fixes, including some tied to debunked 2020 election conspiracy theories. Only a fraction of the bills actually made it to law, with many blocked by House Speaker Rusty Bowers, R-Mesa, and Sen. Paul Boyer, R-Glendale.
