Groups have right to contest elimination of Arizona’s permanent early voting list

Voting rights groups can contest a 2021 state law that eliminates the state’s permanent early voting list. In a 60-page ruling, U.S. District Court Judge Dominic Lanza said challengers had presented enough information to show the measure violates the federal Voting Rights Act. That ranges from the fact that minorities are more likely to be affected by the law to historical patterns of discrimination and even a statement by a Fountain Hills Republican lawmaker that the judge said could be seen as proof the Legislature approved the change for a racially discriminatory purpose.
