Arizona will periodically remove infrequent mail voters from the state's ballot list after Republican Gov.

Doug Ducey signed legislation passed on Tuesday despite protests from Democrats and advocates who say the law is discriminatory and will make voting harder.

The bill remove infrequent voters from the state’s Permanent Early Voting List, turning it into an “active” early voting list.

Arizona is the latest state to pass a restrictive voting law in the wake of the 2020 election.

Former President Donald Trump's stolen election lie has inspired hundreds of restrictive voting bills in at least 47 states, according to the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law, a nonpartisan group tracking election legislation.

Kelly Townsend, joined Democrats in voting no because the ongoing audit orchestrated by Senate Republicans had not yet been completed and she sought additional legislation.

“The default for most Arizona voters is voting by mail.

Under the bill, counties will be required to remove voters from the early voting list in odd-numbered years if they do not cast a ballot by mail for two consecutive election cycles and do not respond to a notice from election officials within 90 days.

The bill purges voters from the mail voting list even if they choose to cast a ballot in person on the same voter registration, according to Eliza Sweren-Becker, an attorney at the Brennan Center for Justice tracking voting legislation around the country.

Republicans condemned opposition to the bill, arguing that people need to vote more regularly by mail if they want to stay on the early voting list.

"The best country in the world and you have an opportunity to participate in it, but it's not at the top of somebody's list?" said state Sen.
