Jason Snead, Executive Director of Honest Elections Project Action:
“Exciting news coming out of Arizona today with a significant victory for election integrity. Court rulings today have put an end to the massive liberal effort to weaken Arizona’s election laws. HEP Action is proud to work with Arizona Free Enterprise Club, Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections (RITE), and others to defend Arizonans’ right to vote in a free and honest election. This ballot measure put that right in jeopardy by gutting commonsense safeguards like voter ID, lifting protections against non-citizen voting, and legalizing vote trafficking. It even raised taxes to fund politicians’ campaigns. Congress rejected these partisan policies with HR1.
“Left-wing special interests poured at least $7 million into this effort, a majority from out of state, in order to erase all the improvements Arizona has made to its election laws. Liberal activists worked hard to impose their unpopular agenda on Arizona but failed to follow the law and therefore failed to gather enough valid signatures to qualify for the ballot. This a win for the rule of law and for all Arizonans who think it should be easy to vote and hard to cheat.”
