Latest AZ Voting News
October 14 - A federal appeals court has cut off an extension of Arizona’s voter registration deadline, changing it from October 23 to Thursday, October 15.
A lower court judge had extended the deadline last week from October 5 to October 23 after two advocacy groups, Mi Familia Vota and Arizona Coalition for Change, filed a lawsuit arguing that the coronavirus pandemic had stymied their plans to register new voters. This week, state officials asked an appeals court to stop the extension, arguing the sudden change has created administrative problems for election officials at the start of early voting and risks confusing voters.
