Skip to comments.Of Course: Gov. Katie Hobbs Vetoes Election Integrity Reforms in Arizona
Posted on 05/29/2023 9:43:35 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Election irregularities have haunted Maricopa County, Ariz. for the past ten years, raising doubts about the legitimacy of a number of elections, including the 2020 presidential election, where Biden’s state-certified victory was a tiny fraction of the overall vote, and again in 2022 in the election between Katie Hobbs and Kari Lake.
Since then, Republicans in Arizona — and other states with election issues — have sought to reform the state’s elections to help ensure that everyone in the state can feel confident that results were conducted fairly. Democrats have aggressively opposed the efforts and on Friday, Hobbs vetoed several bills from the GOP-controlled legislature — including four bills that would make elections more transparent.
Senate Bill 1135 sought to eliminate Arizona’s affiliation with the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) and shift voter registration to an outsourced third-party entity. Furthermore, the bill required the use of blue or black pens when marking ballots. Senate Bill 1105, which suggested permitting election personnel to tally early ballots at polling locations on Election Day, was likewise declined. Senate Bill 1066 required private voter registration organizations to prominently print “Not from a Government Agency” on envelopes sent to voters. And finally, Senate Bill 1180 sought to prevent organizations from providing a financial incentive based on the number of voter registrations they collect.
It’s like she’s not even trying to pretend to care about elections being fair and honest.
While Republicans have majorities in the Arizona House and Senate, their majority isn’t large enough to override Hobbs’s vetoes. Hobbs’s veto decisions come in the wake of Kari Lake’s recent announcement that her organization, Save Arizona, plans to carry out the most extensive ballot-chasing endeavor in the state’s history during the upcoming 2024 election cycle.

Just another Arizona Republican kabuki dance...
She is totally corrupt. No legislative remedy will fix what is wrong.
And this dear friends, is how they take over one state after another. They pick a state, concentrate the steal there, install a leftist governor, and that state will forever remain blue. This is regardless of what the majority of the voters think.
Is it possible that?....
People moved from California to Colorado to escape they madness. The majority of them didn’t vote progressive but instead fraudulent ballots were cast progressive leaving many to think they are the only sane ones. The far left gets the media attention so people think that is how other’s truly feel. I don’t think the majority of the voters do. It’s the ones the left installs as their representatives who cast the votes as if that is how the majority feels. I’m truly beginning to think that it is a scam all the way through.
Just a thought.
Arizona turned into another Michigan.
Arizona needs to get rid of that corrupt ho.
which suggested permitting election personnel to tally early ballots at polling locations on Election Day, was likewise declined.>> This is important. Also the process must be able to be audited. If not the processes are fraudulent on their face. Also, stop the electronic feeds to the AP and Edison reporting mechanism. The feeds should only come after the vote is certified. This will stop the media madness.
You can begin a recall in July
