Arizona House passes bill that would stop some voters from automatically receiving mail-in ballots.
State lawmakers in the Republican-controlled Arizona House have passed legislation along party-lines to change mail-in voting laws and restrict early voting eligibility. If the bill is approved by the state’s Republican-majority Senate and signed by Republican Governor Doug Ducey, the requirements to stay on Arizona’s permanent early voter list will be altered. Arizonans who have not voted in the last four elections (including primaries) and have failed to respond to a final notice will be removed from the list. There is concern that this will particularly affect unaffiliated and independent voters who may not participate in primaries.
Young adults will be the nation’s largest voting bloc in the upcoming election and the National Voter Education Week plans to equip them with the tools and information they need to cast a ballot this fall.
A voting initiative started by several Black athletes and artists combatting systemic and racist voter suppression. This initiative aims at educating, energizing, and protecting the Black community’s right to vote.
