Key issues • Arizona

Arizona GOP candidate wants to ban mail-in voting. He uses it a lot.

Now, Finchem has been caught in a lie from that same debate, where he said: “I don’t care for mail-in voting — that’s why I go to the polls.”

Arizona-based journalist Dillon Rosenblatt reported Wednesday that public records show that Finchem has voted by mail in 28 of Arizona’s previous 30 elections. In other words, as Rosenblatt wrote, “Finchem votes by mail almost 100% of the time.”

If not for Finchem’s crusade against mail-in voting, his use of a mail-in ballot would not be an issue. An overwhelming majority of Arizonans — that is, across the political spectrum — vote by mail.
