Opponents try to force vote on election changes

PHOENIX (AP) -

A group opposed to a new law overhauling the early voting process in Arizona and making it more difficult for third-party candidates to get on the ballot has filed for a citizen's referendum.

The Protect Your Right to Vote Committee filed the referendum on Monday. If it collects 86,405 valid signatures by Sept. 12 the law will be put on hold until the November 2014 general election.

The legislation backed by Republicans and signed by Gov. Jan Brewer last month seeks to trim Arizona's permanent early voting list, limit who may return voters' mail ballots and require more signatures for third-party candidates to get on the ballot.

Democratic lawmakers called it a thinly veiled effort to keep Republicans in power by creating new hurdles for some candidates and low-income voters.

    Among the highlights of the year for many Alabama birders are the fall and spring meetings of the Alabama Ornithological Society on Dauphin Island.
