PHOENIX (AP) — Lawmakers considering election bills Monday were urged to adopt a series of bills changing the way elections are conducted.

Legislators heard from a leading Republican candidate for Arizona governor and a number of people who worked on the Senate GOP's partisan 2020 ballot review.

In a series of party-line votes, Republicans on the committee voted to advance bills that would make pictures of all ballots publicly accessible after an election; end all-mail elections for cities and school boards and require extensive security requirements on ballot paper akin to those used to prevent and detect counterfeit money.
