Arizona S.B. 1260 Challenge

Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans v. Hobbs

Lawsuit filed on behalf of Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans, Voto Latino, and Priorities USA against Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D), Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich (R) and other elections officials challenging three provisions of Senate Bill 1260. Signed into law in June 2021, S.B. 1260 requires county recorders to cancel a voter’s registration if they receive confirmation that the voter is registered to vote in another Arizona county, creates a process to remove voters from the state’s permanent vote-by-mail list if the voter is registered in another county and makes it a felony to forward a mail-in ballot to a voter who may be registered in another state. The lawsuit argues that these provisions should be permanently blocked because, in total, they violate the First Amendment’s rights to free speech and association and the First and 14th Amendments’ protections against undue burdens on the right to vote.
