Election invoice proposing AZ Legislature can overturn election outcomes

YUMA, Arizona (KYMA, KECY) – Arizona lawyers recently passed new law designed to change the way future elections are held and even dramatically affect the election results.
The Arizona House Bill 2720 was brought to the table by Rep. Shawnna Bolick, who advocates for more efficient and fairer elections arising from allegations of election fraud in the 2020 election.
Section 3 of the bill provides that Arizona law would have the power to reverse the election results of the Secretary of State at any time prior to the day of inauguration.
District 4 MP Charlene Fernandez is against this idea.
“That’s just a terrible thought, that people go and vote and vote and who they want to be the next president and vice president of the great United States, and then it goes before the Arizona law and a group of 90 people go around to decide if you were right, “said Rep. Fernandez.
Rep. Fernandez says this would discourage voters if they believe their vote doesn’t matter.
According to Rep. Bolick, the recorder’s office is still receiving tons of requests to conduct a 2020 election review.
“This bill would give Arizona legislation back the power it has delegated to certify voters. It’s good democratic scrutiny and balance.”

However, the Democrats stress that this was one of the fairest elections.
“It went so much smoother than it did four years ago because of all the security they put in place, all the extra places to vote and the pressure to vote by mail,” said Rep. Fernandez.
Other matters on the bill would remove permanent early voters who haven’t voted recently in order to make audits easier to conduct.
There is also another section that records how many ballots they sent out and how many they received to ensure that no additional votes are cast.
But Rep. Fernandez says there are more important issues.
“We want to deal with COVID. We want to make sure we have enough vaccines here in our districts that people who need to be tested can be tested and instead talk about suppressing the vote on how to change it because.” ‘I’m crazy about the last election,’ “said Rep. Fernandez.
There are a variety of electoral laws, including this one, that will be up for discussion in Arizona this week.
