New ballot initiative would require ID for all voting in Arizona

Sharing is Caring!

A group of Arizonans filed the “Arizonans for Voter ID Act” ballot initiative this week asking the secretary of state’s office to further ID requirements for in-person voting, individuals returning a voter’s ballots, and mail-in voting.

In a news release, the political committee chaired by Arizona voter Vicki Vaughn said the initiative would make it easier to vote but harder to cheat.

“Arizonans show identification all the time in their daily lives to purchase alcohol, receive unemployment benefits, make major transactions, and board a plane, among others,” Vaughn said in a statement. “Requiring identification before casting a ballot is necessary for our elections.”

The initiative is similar to legislation filed by Sen. J.D. Mesnard, R-Chandler, that failed to make it through the legislative process.

The news release listed the Arizona Free Enterprise Club (AFEC), Heritage Action, Honest Elections Project Action, Foundation for Government Accountability, the Goldwater Institute, the Republican Liberty Caucus of Arizona, AMAC Action, and Arizona Women of Action among supporters of the initiative.
