Washington, DC — Yesterday, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey signed into law a bill to strengthen Arizona's election laws and promote election security. This bill features policy recommendations issued by The Heritage Foundation and was presented to the Arizona state legislature by Heritage Action Sentinel Ron Ludders.
HB 2054 will increase the accuracy of state voter rolls by mandating the Secretary of State compare death records with voter registrations and remove deceased voters. In addition to a monthly audit of deceased voters, this bill adds an annual review of the state voter registration database cross-referenced with an annual citizen death report from the Department of Health Services.
In response to the bill's signing, Heritage Action Executive Director Jessica Anderson released the following statement:
We applaud the Arizona state legislature and Governor Ducey for taking the necessary steps to strengthen the integrity of the electoral process and safeguard the votes of Arizonans. The Heritage Action team is especially proud to see our Arizona Sentinels representing the conservative grassroots cause in the legislature and leading the fight for free and fair elections.
This bill is a victory for those who value the principle of "one person, one vote" — but our work is not finished. We look forward to working alongside state officials and grassroots leaders to defend our elections and advance common-sense reforms nationwide.
