JULY, 2018, UPDATE:
Secretary of State Michele Reagan DID cause a revised Election Procedures Manual to be created for the current election cycle. Attorney General Mark Brnovich and Governor Doug Ducey signed-off on the new manual. This 2018 version of the manual still violates the intent of certain statutes, and/or adds context not present in the statutes. Secretary Reagan has yet to receive any consequences of her failures to perform the faithfully execute the duties of the office. Nor have the attorney general and the governor received any consequences of their failure to execute their duties. . . . Itasca Small
KEEP THE REPUBLIC!
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness�That to secure these rights Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed�" The Declaration of Independence.
The purpose of government is to PROTECT RIGHTS by the consent of We, the People.
The consent of We, the People, requires free and equal elections!
Article 2, Section 21. All elections shall be free and equal, and no power, civil or military, shall at any time interfere to prevent the free exercise of the right of suffrage.
AZ Revised Statutes:
16-542(A). ". . . the secretary of state shall prescribe rules to achieve and maintain the maximum degree of correctness, impartiality, uniformity and efficiency on the procedures for early voting and voting, and of producing, distributing, collecting, counting, tabulating and storing ballots."
These rules are required to be published in an "Election Procedures Manual" in a manner prescribed by this statute.
We can ONLY have free and equal elections
when the elected officer tasked with executing
Arizona's Election Law does the job!
As one of the office's crucial powers and duties, the secretary of state is the highest executive officer over the state's Elections. This means that when the current governor declares that he is the chief executive officer of the state�as he did once again, at the Maricopa County Republican Committee Meeting on January 13, 2018�he is wrong!
Arizona has a plural executive department, which means, NO state-level executive officer is above any other in inherent constitutional authority, as constitutionally-prescribed, and/or codified, in the power and duties of each of these five executive officers! See the AZ Constitution, Article V.
The secretary of state is THE highest elections officer in the state!
The current secretary of state has not performed her duties to We, the People, under the Laws of Arizona; she has committed
violations of law
and the state constitution,
We, the People of Arizona, are being harmed by her refusal and/or failure to perform her statutory duties�
The current secretary of state
HAS REFUSED to prepare the Election Procedures Manual as REQUIRED by LAW (A.R.S. � 16-452), and the 2014 manual in-use contains blatant statutory violations. (See the Issue One Page.)
The current secretary of state also
Violated the LAW
by NOT mailing more than 400,000 Prop 123 & 124 Publicity Pamphlets
BEFORE mailing early ballots, thus, leaving hundreds of thousands of voters ignorant of the facts when they cast their early ballots in a very close election; opening Arizona's state trust land to looting, allegedly to satisfy what was a blatantly BAD court ruling! (See the Issue Two Page.)
We need a secretary of state who will uphold the laws and our constitutions!
A secretary of state who will offer his/her pledge to We, the People, of Arizona, at least similar to the following:
- to uphold the Arizona State Constitution, the Constitution for the United States, and the Arizona Revised Statutes, in executing the authority, powers and duties inherent in�and lawfully prescribed upon�the Office of Secretary of State. And, in so doing:
- to assure that Arizona Elections are free and equal�as implemented in correct, efficient, impartial and uniform processes.
- to IMMEDIATELY BEGIN TO PURGE OUR ELECTION SYSTEM of ALL unlawful and/or unconstitutional rules, regulations and procedures.
- to update the STATUTE-REQUIRED Election Procedures Manual, AS-REQUIRED, throughout my tenure as your Secretary of State.
Who has the Best Interests at heart of Individual Arizonans
and our inherent God-given Rights, including
�but, not limited to�
The Right to Life,
and the Pursuit of Happiness!*
(*To pursue earning and holding Property!)
Without Liberty, FREEDOM cannot exist!
LIBERTY DOES begin in our own BACKYARD!
