GOP to Appeal Ruling That Moves Arizona Voter Registration Deadline to Oct. 23

"While this Court acknowledges the efforts made by the Secretary and the State to make voter registration easier, the Court is also cognizant of the large population of Arizona that lacks access to the internet. Registering to vote has never been easier for some, though others are not so fortunate," Logan wrote, referring to the state's argument that registering to vote has "has never been easier" due to the internet. "Ballot access is an extremely important right, and it has been restricted during this unprecedented time." "The Court takes note that 31 other states have later voter deadlines than Arizona, many of which allow voters to register when they show up to vote on Election Day," he added. "The Court agrees with Plaintiffs’ point made in oral argument that voter confusion will be minimal. Voters who are already registered will not need to bother with the new deadline, and those voters that were unable to register before October 5, 2020 now have extra time. The Court acknowledges the difficulty with early voting requests coming in after the deadline for early voting has passed, and notes that Plaintiffs admitted during oral argument that even a shorter extension would help cure their harm.
