The Arizona Supreme court has shot down a proposed ballot initiative that would eliminate basic election integrity measures under the deceptive name “Arizonans for Free and Fair Elections.”
The Democrat-backed dark money ballot initiative officially titled Proposition 210 would have made it even easier for them to cheat by expanding drop boxes and mail-in voting, voter registration to all regardless of their citizenship status, automatic voter registration, and banning post-election audits — like the Arizona Senate’s 2020 Election audit. Under the new law, it would be a class 6 felony to “provide voted ballots to a person” for the purpose of auditing an election.
The Arizonans for Free and Fair elections initiative is a Democrat Trojan Horse meant to permanently weaken Arizona elections.
It must not pass.

The Gateway Pundit reported extensively on the Arizona 2020 election audit, which discovered massive election law violations and hundreds of thousands of illegal or fraudulent ballots.
Dinesh D’Souza’s “2000 Mules” documentary exposed even more shocking evidence that the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen with hundreds of thousands of illegally trafficked mail-in votes in Arizona.
It’s no wonder they want to expand dropboxes and mail-in ballots.
The initiative would also restore the Permanent Early Voting List in Arizona, allowing mail-in ballots to be sent each year to people who may not even vote.
The Federalist reported,
Titled Proposition 210, the now-failed ballot initiative had the potential to completely overhaul Arizona’s election laws, several of which the state legislature recently passed. As noted by The Tennessee Star, the 26-page proposal “is very similar to the federal HR 1,” the legislation previously introduced by congressional Democrats that would have resulted in a federal takeover of elections.
Among the proposed changes to Arizona election law were same-day voter registration, a repealing of “Arizona’s ballot harvesting ban,” and “voter registration with minimal identification, such as a pay stub.” Other provisions in the initiative would have disqualified “electors who don’t choose the president selected by Arizona’s presidential election,” eliminated “the 30-day residency requirement in order to vote,” and made it “harder to cancel voter registrations of inactive voters,” among others.
In 2021, the Arizona legislature passed a law that “requires the state to remove infrequent voters from the state’s Permanent Early Voting List, turning it into an ‘active’ early voting list.” GOP Gov. Doug Ducey also signed a bill earlier this year mandating that voters show proof of citizenship in order to vote in federal elections.
The latter has since been the subject of a lawsuit filed against Arizona by the Biden Department of Justice, which referred to the law as an “unnecessary requirement” that “turns the clock back on progress” and “block[s] eligible voters from the registration rolls for certain federal elections.”
According to the Associated Press (AP), the state Supreme Court’s Friday decision “upholds a lower court ruling issued hours earlier, in which Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Joseph Mikitish rejected thousands of signatures and said the initiative fell 1,458 signatures short of the 238,000 required to qualify for the ballot.”
“The judge’s Friday ruling reversed his own decision from a day earlier after the Supreme Court asked him to explain how he concluded that the initiative had enough valid signatures to qualify,” the AP report says. “When the judge upheld the measure the day before, [Chief Justice Robert] Brutinel had refused to accept it, saying [the] court was unable to determine exactly how Mikitish came to his determination that backers had collected enough valid signatures for the measure to appear on November’s ballot.”
In response to the high court’s decision, backers of Proposition 210 have issued several outlandish statements on the matter, with the committee backing the initiative going as far as to claim that certain “politicians have been intentionally trying to attack the ballot measure process for over a decade to prevent voters from being able to make decisions about Arizona’s future at the ballot box.”
“Today’s decision is a continuation of these attacks and reflects an increasingly extreme MAGA agenda,” they added.
Efforts to railroad election integrity efforts through state constitution-altering ballot initiatives are hardly exclusive to Arizona. In Michigan, efforts are underway to get an election law-changing proposal on the ballot for the midterm election that would expand the use of ballot drop boxes and provide voters with the “right” to vote by absentee ballot, among several other changes.
AZ Free News also reported,
The ballot initiative is the effort of a Democratic coalition of major players in state and national politics filtered through the Arizona Democracy Resource Center (ADRC) as “ADRC Action.” Although the initiative appears to be a local effort at first glance, there are glimpses into the source of its millions in funds: the massive, national Democratic network of dark money. Arizonans for Free and Fair Elections actually sources back to a national donor network called “Way to Win,” which launched as a direct response to former President Donald Trump’s 2016 victory over Hillary Clinton. They asserted that their over $110 million funneled to states in 2019 flipped Arizona and George blue in the 2020 presidential election.
Way to Win’s major funding comes from the likes of globalist billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Foundations and his family, Stryker Corporation heiress Patricia Stryker, and the prominent dark money D.C. consulting firm Arabella Advisors’ Sixteen Thirty (1630) Fund.
The Soros family has invested personally in Arizona’s elections as well. To date, the family has invested $10,000 in former Maricopa County Recorder and secretary of state candidate Adrian Fontes’ campaign, $10,000 to Democratic attorney general candidate Kris Mayes’ campaign, and $10,600 to Secretary of State Katie Hobbs’ gubernatorial campaign.
According to the latest campaign finance filings, ADRC Action has accumulated well over $7.6 million from in-kind contributions, over $5.5 million of which were from ADRC itself, and expended only $50,000. The second-largest donation came from the Tides Foundation-backed One Arizona, which donated $925,000.
Activate 48 donated $600,000 — they partner with Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA), who donated $500,000 themselves and receives support from the Arabella Advisors 1630 Fund and the National Education Association (NEA); Mi Familia Vota; secretary of state candidate Reginald Bolding’s scandal-ridden, dark money-linked Our Voice Our Vote; and Chispa Arizona. The Education Foundation of America also donated $50,000.
The initiative would also “raise small business taxes to increase political campaign funding, and restore private funding in election administration,” according to AZ Free News.
The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Maricopa County received $3 million in private funding from Mark Zuckerberg’s Center for Technology and Civic Life to steal the election.
Do we need any more evidence that the Democrats are rigging elections?
