More than 600,000 Independents on PEVL
PHOENIX, AZ – Michele Reagan wrongly claimed today that Independents are not on the Permanent Early Voter List, a stunning comment from the head of the Senate Elections Committee.
In an exchange over Reagan's attempt to suppress Independents through her support of HB2305, Reagan erroneously tweeted: “Impossible! IND’s can’t be purged from the PEVL because they aren’t even on it! #NoClue"
In fact, more than 600,000 registered Independents are on Arizona’s Permanent Early Voter List, according to data compiled by each of the County Recorder offices -- a group Reagan works with as head of the Senate Elections Committee.
“Michele Reagan wants to administer all of our state's elections, but appears to have a fundamental misunderstanding of how our elections work,” said Terry Goddard. “Reagan sided with efforts to purge Independents and Libertarians from our elections, and voted to discriminate against the gay community. Secretaries of State are supposed to be non-partisan and fair in their decisions. Michele Reagan has shown her priorities are anything but.”
