The Arizona House Elections Committee voted Tuesday to make changes to rules around the Permanent Early Voting List.

If it passes, the bill would prohibit county officials from sending early ballots to voters who did not use them in the past two election cycles — effectively scrubbing those names from the early voting list. The bill has already passed the state Senate, with Republican Michelle Ugenti-Rita sponsoring.

It would be up to each county whether to send notice to voters before removing their names.

The Show spoke with one of the officials who will be directly affected if this law goes through — Yavapai County Recorder Leslie Hoffman.
