Republicans Appeal Fed Judge's Ruling To Push Back AZ's Voter Registration Deadline

Republican organizations are appealing a federal judge's ruling that pushes back Arizona's voter registration deadline by nearly three weeks because of the pandemic.

U.S. District Judge Steven Logan in Phoenix sided late Monday with the organizing groups Mi Familia Vota and Arizona Coalition for Change. He ruled hours before the original deadline arrived at midnight that voter registration forms received by Oct. 23 should be considered valid. Mi Familia Vota and the Arizona Coalition for Change filed suit last week arguing that they’ve faced higher costs and lower success rates in their voter registration efforts because of the pandemic. The Republican National Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee are appealing.
