Maricopa County approves limited changes to elections agreement

Months after pushing back on rumors of internal tensions, Maricopa County officials approved an agreement drawing stronger lines of responsibility between the agencies tasked with running elections. The agreement, which Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors greenlit Wednesday, largely won’t impact elections operations but will mean shifts in communications strategies. Under the new agreement, the Elections Department will be fully under the control of county supervisors and have its own communications team. The supervisors are responsible for functions such as in-person voting and vote tallying. The Recorder’s Office, which is responsible for areas like campaign finance, voter registration and mail-in voting, will rely on separate spokespeople. Sasha Hupka, Arizona Republic.
