Republican legislatures across the country are trying to restrict voting, and the Terrible Sand Kingdom of Arizonastan has passed a bill that would stop voters from automatically receiving a mail-in ballot. That will suppress turn-out! Arizona has had three decades of mail-in voting.
The bill passed on a party-line vote (no d’uh, and where’s that bipartisanship Unicorn now?) and comes just months after former Prznint Stupid and his orcs and minions tried to overturn Arizona’s 2020 Goat Rodeo election results.
(CNN)The GOP-led Arizona House on Tuesday passed legislation that would make changes to the mail-in voting process in the state, including stopping some voters from automatically receiving ballots…
Since it was amended in the House, the bill now must go back to the state Senate for final approval. If the Senate, scheduled to reconvene Thursday, passes the amended version, it will then go to Gov. Doug Ducey.
The Republican governor has not yet indicated whether he plans to sign the bill into law if it reaches his desk.
Of course he’ll sign it; why wouldn’t he?
