State primary election date moves to July 30

More from this show

Democrats and Republicans came together to pass new legislation to move the election date in Arizona up a week to July 30. This replaces the prior August 6 primary election date.

Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs officially signed the law into legislation last week. The new legislation was written to solve an issue the state was facing with an automatic recount voting bill that was passed in 2022, which would have potentially delayed ballots from coming in on time.

Stephen Richer, Maricopa County Recorder, joined us on Arizona Horizon to talk about this change along with other important key dates that have been changed with this new legislation.
