“Nonpartisan Election Administration Is the Norm in Other Democracies. Why Not Here?”

Thom Reilly in Governing, on the ASU survey of Arizona voters’ attitudes about elections: “What we found was that Arizona voters strongly supported requiring top state and local election officials, defined as positions such as secretary of state and county recorder, to be elected in a nonpartisan manner, unlike the state’s current system. Further, registered voters of all party identifications — fully 92 percent of survey respondents — felt that top election officials should be required to take an oath to function in a nonpartisan manner.”
