Repeal of Arizona 2013 Ballot Access Restriction Moves Closer

On February 10, the Arizona Senate Judiciary Committee passed SB 1270 by 6-3. SB 1270 is identical to HB 2196. Both bills repeal the 2013 omnibus election law bill. The 2013 bill made it far more difficult for members of qualified minor parties to get on their own party’s primary ballots.

The two repeal bills (one in each House) have now passed all committees, so it seems likely they will pass into law soon.
