All Mail Voting Urged

A wealthy Arizona radio station executive who says he was disturbed by paltry turnout when he ran for Congress "is bankrolling an initiative that could pave the way for Arizonans to vote almost entirely by mail," the Arizona Republic reports.

"While many state residents vote with absentee ballots, the proposed initiative goes much further. If it passes, elections officials would automatically send all voters a ballot and a return envelope with prepaid postage. Only a few polling places would remain open on Election Day for traditional voting and to allow voters to drop off last-minute mail-in ballots."

However, Secretary of State Jan Brewer "said she vehemently opposes the measure."
