Arizona Mail-in Voting Challenge II

Arizona Republican Party v. Hobbs

Lawsuit filed on behalf of the Arizona Republican Party and its chairwoman challenging the state’s no-excuse mail-in voting system, which has been in place since 1991. The plaintiffs argue that the Arizona Constitution requires in-person voting on specific days and, because mail-in voting does not follow these rules, it is unconstitutional. The lawsuit asks the state trial court to strike down Arizona’s no-excuse mail-in voting system, which has been extremely popular since it was instituted in 1991, and only allow in-person voting in future elections. This is the plaintiffs’ second attempt to disband the state’s extremely popular mail-in voting system after their first attempt was rejected by the Arizona Supreme Court. The court rejected the plaintiffs’ request for relief and then dismissed the case. The plaintiffs then filed a notice of appeal and petitioned to transfer the case to the Arizona Supreme Court, which was denied.
