“Arizona attorney general won’t halt May 17 election, launches inquiry into pamphlet error”

Arizona Republic:

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said Thursday that he will not seek a postponement of next week’s special election over officials’ failure to distribute election pamphlets to 200,000 Arizona households.

But saying he’s frustrated “we can’t get things done the right way” when it comes to elections, Brnovich said he has launched an inquiry into why the error occurred and why Secretary of State Michele Reagan did not immediately notify the public of the problem.

Reagan had known since April 22 that the pamphlets weren’t sent to some voters, but she only went public with that information in a  May 6 media interview. The pamphlets describe the initiatives, present pro and con arguments on the issues, and list where voters can cast their ballots.
