PHOENIX (AP) -

The Arizona Senate has voted to repeal a sweeping 2013 Arizona election law that included trimming the state's permanent early voting list and a host of other provisions that incensed voter-rights advocates.

Majority Republicans who pushed House Bill 2305 through last June voted to repeal the law on a 17-12 vote on Thursday. The House passed an identical bill last week. The bill will now go to the governor.

Republicans pushing the repeal say they are following the will of the voters and expressed worry that the many provisions in the bill could not be changed without a supermajority vote of the Legislature if it is repealed by voters. Democrats worry the provisions will be re-enacted.

Repealing the law will cancel the voter referendum.
