Arizona Mail Ballot Deadline

July 16, 2020

Challenging Arizona over its mail ballot deadline law and practice that systematically disenfranchise voters in general and Hispanic and Latino voters in particular. Arizona requires ballots to be received by 7 p.m. on Election Day. The Election Day Receipt Deadline has particularly profound implications for Arizona’s Hispanic and Latino voters. In rural counties Hispanic and Latino voters are five to six times more likely to be disenfranchised than white voters. We settled with the state, who agreed to expand early voting and outreach efforts to these communities.
