ON THE ISSUES

Protect States’ Rights

I will defend Arizona against the overreaching federalization of our elections and election system by vociferously opposing any federal bills that effectively override legislatively enacted or voter approved state laws. For example, H.R. 1 (the For the People Act of 2021) legalizes ballot harvesting which has been illegal in Arizona since 2016, it establishes an automatic voter registration system which requires a person to otherwise opt out while Arizona operates a one time opt in voter registration system, and it also institutes mandatory vote by mail only elections for federal offices.
