There's no other way to say it: Arizona’s Presidential Preference Election held on Tuesday was a national disgrace. This was a systemic failure on all levels -- from the very top to the bottom.
From Governor Ducey penny-pinching our elections; Secretary Reagan prioritizing her Dark Money bill rather than Tuesday’s elections; Republican lawmakers pushing voter suppression laws; to Maricopa County officials ignoring the warnings and reducing the number of polling locations in an attempt to make it harder for Arizonans to vote.
Let’s call it like it is: Arizonans were disenfranchised and voting was suppressed.
These folks run Arizona’s government -- top to bottom. They’re the ones in power, their actions have consequences, and they need to be held accountable.
The Arizona Democratic Party will continue pushing for fair and open election laws, finding and correcting any systemic failures, and acting to bring fair independent oversight to Arizona elections. We’re working with our lawyers to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
