From Robyn Prud'homme-Bauer, President of the League of Women Voters of Arizona: "The League of Women Voters is committed to working for an accessible voter registration and election system that protects all voters against discrimination at the ballot box. The early balloting system in Arizona is an easy and accessible way for voters to vote."

The Arizona Republic did a piece using an interview with Robyn Prud'homme-Bauer. We do not think it was as fair as it could be. Robyn's responses are these: LWV Arizona RESPONSES

The AZ Republic Article is called Ballot Harvesting by Doug MacEachern on October 26, 2014

Ballot Issues...MAKE SURE YOUR VOTE IS COUNTED

At some point in your voting life, you will have something go wrong with your early ballot. Among the most common items that will can be a problem are:
1. The ballot becomes spoiled by coffee, tea, or some beverage.
2. You use the wrong color ink on the ballot (red for instance)
3. You accidentally vote for a proposition that you did not mean to vote for.
4. You accidentally voted for the wrong candidate.

5. You mixed up your ballot with your spouse's ballot...and you are unsure about the number on the ballot corresponding to your signature

6. Anything else

WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?

ANSWER: Go Vote in Person! Bring your Early Ballot, and vote in person. Do not fudge anything, because your vote may not count be counted. The Secretary of State of Arizona has trained its staff to first dismiss a ballot rather than accommodating even a small irregularity!
