H2306: RIGHT TO REDEEM; LIEN SALE Questions/Comments

A real property tax lien cannot be redeemed after the entry of a judgment of foreclosing the right to redeem. When the court enters judgment foreclosing the right to redeem, the court must direct the county treasurer to sell the property and deliver the deed to the purchaser after the purchaser pays, instead of to deliver the deed to the party in whose favor the judgment was entered. The foreclosure of the right to redeem does not extinguish the property owner's or another lienholder's interest in the surplus proceeds from the sale of the property. The treasurer is required to sell the property at public auction. An auction must be held within 6 months after the entry of a judgment foreclosing the right to redeem. Requirements for notice of the auction and conducting the auction are established, including requiring the county treasurer to set the minimum bid at the property's limited cash value. After deducting and distributing interest, penalties, fees and costs charged against the parcel, the county treasurer is required to post a public list of the remaining monies that any party that had a legal interest in the property before the judgment foreclosing the right to redeem or the issuance of the tax deed to this state may claim. The county treasurer is required to continuously post a list of properties sold in the past five years in the treasurer's office and on the treasurer's official website. After receiving full payment for the property, the county treasurer is required to notify by mail the former property owner and any person with a recorded interest in the property, and information that must be included in the notice is listed. Any portion of the surplus monies that remains unclaimed after five years must be treated as unclaimed property. More. Emergency clause.

H2701: POLLING PLACES; IDENTIFICATION; EARLY VOTING Questions/Comments

Various changes relating to elections and polling places. Any qualified elector is authorized to vote by early ballot in person at any polling place. A qualified elector may vote by mail only if the elector is physically unable to cast a ballot within the period for early voting, or has a physical disability, is confined to a nursing home or other similar facility, is on military duty or is temporarily residing outside Arizona. County boards of supervisors are required, instead of allowed, to authorize the use of voting centers in place of specifically designated polling places for 30 days before the day of the election. A county with a population of less than 200,000 persons is required to have a maximum of four voting centers, a county with a population of 200,000 persons or more and less than 1 million persons is required to have a maximum of eight voting centers, and a county with a population of 1 million persons or more is required to have a maximum of fifteen voting centers, as determined by the board of supervisors. Election precinct lines are required to be drawn to include as a priority public elementary, middle and high schools within an election precinct. School principals are no longer authorized to deny a request to provide space for use as a polling place. A driver license applicant is required to submit proof of identity by presenting all of the following documentation: an original or certified copy of a U.S. passport or birth certificate, proof of a social security number by presenting an original or copy of a social security card or W-2 form, and proof of residency in Arizona in two forms, such as a utility bill or bank statement. The list of satisfactory proof of U.S. citizenship that the county recorder may accept for voter registration is expanded to include an identification card issued by Arizona or the U.S. Due to voter protection, several sections of this legislation require the affirmative vote of at least 3/4 of the members of each house of the Legislature for passage.

H2720: BALLOTS; ELECTION CONTESTS; CERTIFICATES Questions/Comments

Various changes relating to elections. The Legislature retains its legislative authority regarding the office of presidential elector and by majority vote at any time before the presidential inauguration is authorized to revoke the Secretary of State's issuance or certification of a presidential elector's certificate of election. The Legislature is permitted to take this action without regard to whether the Legislature is in regular or special session or has held committee or other hearings on the matter. Any party to an election contest may request a jury trial, which must be granted and tried as other jury trials in a civil action, except that the statutory provisions for election contests prevail over any conflicting rules of procedure for jury trials. In an election contest jury trial, a court is prohibited from granting a motion to dismiss or a motion for summary judgment that would result in dismissal until after the jury has issued its verdict. Without regard to the system or method used to produce or tabulate ballots, the county recorder or officer in charge of elections is required to maintain a count of the number of physical ballots printed and the number of ballots otherwise generated in the following categories: early ballots, regular ballots, provisional ballots, federal-only ballots, and ballots generated in an electronic form. The county recorder or officer in charge of elections is required to post that information on the county's website within one day after election day. The county recorder or officer in charge of elections is required to create digitized images of ballots and to keep the digitized images and the physical ballots as public records. At least ten persons from the general public who are registered voters in the county are allowed to observe the proceedings at the counting center at any time throughout the day. All observers must be allowed to observe each essential part of the proceedings at the counting center. When ballots are damaged or defective and cannot be counted by the automatic tabulating equipment, the images that are made of a duplicate of those ballots must be posted to the county's website within 24 hours after duplication along with the determination by the election board as to that voter's intent for each contest adjudicated. Any disruption in live video coverage of the custody of all ballots while the ballots are present in a tabulation room in the counting center will result in the members of the board of supervisors and the county recorder being deemed ineligible for reelection and barred from holding any public office in Arizona for ten years after the expiration of the term of office in which the disruption in video coverage occurred.

H2722: EMERGENCY VOTING; MANUAL; PHOTOGRAPHS; ELECTIONEERING Questions/Comments

Repeals statute allowing county boards of supervisors to authorize the use of voting centers in place of or in addition to polling places. An emergency voting center may be established only on occurrence of a genuine emergency such as war, civil unrest or natural disaster that makes it likely that large numbers of voters will be substantially impaired in their ability to vote on election day as compared to other elections. The elections instructions and procedures manual prepared by the Secretary of State is required to provide for transparency and election security to the maximum extent allowed by law. If any provision of the instructions and procedures manual conflicts with any statute, the provision of the instructions and procedures manual is unenforceable and statute prevails. In addition to the Secretary of State, the Legislature is required to provide personnel who are experts in electronic voting systems and procedures and in electronic voting system security to field check and review electronic voting systems and recommend needed statutory and procedural changes, including changes in the instructions and procedures manual. Also, a person is allowed to take photographs or videos of himself, his/her own ballot and any election worker, but is prohibited from taking photographs or videos of other voters or other voters' ballots.

S1241: VOTING EQUIPMENT; BALLOTS; RECEIPT Questions/Comments

Various changes to statutes related to voting.

For any voting location that uses on-site ballot tabulating equipment, and on request of the voter, an electronic voting system is required to provide a paper receipt to the voter at the time the voter's ballot is received for tabulation. The paper receipt is required to state whether the ballot will be tabulated at the voting location or securely stored until the polls closed and then transmitted to the central counting place for tabulation. A person is prohibited from accessing any area where servers or hard drives that contain election-related data are stored unless the person is preapproved by or directly supervised by the county recorder or other officer in charge of elections. Any tabulation equipment that is used in a polling place or voting center is prohibited from having internet or remote access at any time. The delivery, use and return of any equipment used to tabulate or store election data is required to be logged on a chain of custody document so that the name and signature of every person who delivers, receives, uses and returns that equipment is recorded and retained as an official election record. All removable data storage devices must be secured with a tamper-evident seal that contains a unique serial number that is recorded and confirmed on a chain of custody document. Once counting begins at the counting center, an approved observer from a political party must be allowed to have a “reasonable view” (defined) of the connection and removal of any removable data storage device. Violations of these requirements are a class 2 (mid-level) misdemeanor. At the completion of a duplicate ballot, each member of the duplication board is required to sign a duplication log attesting that to the best of the member’s ability the duplicate copy is a true duplicate copy of the original ballot. The county recorder is no longer authorized to dispose of irregular ballots after six months. The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), when allowing a person obtaining a driver license to register to vote, is required to provide a person who was previously registered to vote in another state a form for canceling the person’s previous voter registration for the other state. ADOT is required to forward the form for voter registration cancellation to that state’s chief state election officer. AS PASSED HOUSE
