NB: We have had secure mail-in voting in Arizona for over 20 years. It wasn’t invented during covid to ensure The Steal as was done in many other swing states, and in many cases in violation of those state’s constitutions. In AZ, there is a signature-verification feature, it is very securely processed through USPS (no drop boxes for stuffing, except for a few heavily monitored ones)… and 70% of all votes are cast this way. If instead you vote at the polls on election day, ID is required, and ID checkers from both parties are present. There was never any problem with election integrity before 2020, and results were always known within hours of the polls closing. Lastly, have I mentioned that Katie Hobbs was never made to resign as Secretary of State, nor did she offer to resign her post, as decorum and propriety are so old and unwoke. Katie aside, I have total faith in this dude to ensure election integrity. -nvp
