Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey Voices Support for Mail-In Voting During Meeting With Trump

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) joined President Donald Trump in an Oval Office meeting on Wednesday where he expressed his confidence in mail-in voting.

A reporter asked Ducey if he is proud of the mail-in voting system in his state.

“In Arizona, we’re going to do it right. It will be free and fair. It will be difficult if not impossible to cheat and it will be easy to vote. Seventy-eight percent of citizens already vote by mail in Arizona, but we’ve been doing this since 1992,” Ducey said.

He added, “So over the course of decades we’ve established a system that works and can be trusted.”

He was then asked if he is sharing what is working in his state with Trump so he can apply that to other states.

Ducey called Arizona a “model” for providing different options and choices for voting to the state’s citizens.

“We’ve actually allocated an additional $9 million to make certain that election day voters can go safely in proper sanitized places that are well staffed on election day. We want to make sure that everyone that wants to vote can vote and they will in Arizona,” Ducey said.

Ducey’s comments come less than a week after Trump tossed out the idea of delaying the election blasting “universal mail-in voting,” as IJR previously reported.

He argued if Americans choose to vote using the mail-in voting system, the upcoming election will be the most “inaccurate” and “fraudulent” election in history.

Trump doubled down on his comments during an exchange with reporters at the White House on Friday, as IJR previously reported.

He suggested if mail-in voting expands, election delays could last “weeks, months, maybe years.”

Trump’s re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) also filed a lawsuit against the state of Nevada over an expanded mail-in voting bill calling it unconstitutional.
