URGENT THREAD: Across the country, Republicans have used their power to retaliate for Democratic electoral gains. We saw it in WI & MI with the #GOPPowerGrab, and now the GOP is coming after voting rights in Arizona TODAY. #VotingMattersAZ #AZVotingRights indivisible.org/resource/defen…
In the 2018 election, Arizona’s early voting totals surpassed 2014 total voter turnout! With huge surges in Democratic early voting, Republicans in #AZLeg are now retaliating by trying to impose barriers on early voting.
.@MichelleUgenti (LD 23) has introduced three bills to make it harder to vote early: #SB1046, #SB1072, and #SB1090.

I'll be live tweeting today's #AZLeg Judiciary Committee hearing where another @MichelleUgenti voter suppression bill will be heard. #SB1090 seems to be in retaliation to Maricopa County Recorder's decision to open Emergency Voting Centers the weekend before Election Day 2018. /1
You see, AZ has about a month of early voting. But, strangely, polling places are closed the weekend prior to Election Day. And, in fact, state Senators PASSED a bill just last session to allow for in person voting through & including the weekend prior to Election Day. /2
The state House, for whatever reason, decided the bi-partisan bill passed by the Senate wasn't worth their time so never took it up. Every County Recorder in the state supported the Senate passed bill. /3 #ThingsThatMatterAZ
