The first update since 2014 to Arizona’s Election Procedures Manual was rolled out Friday for public comment.

Secretary of State Katie Hobbs said it’s important the public have the chance to weigh in on how elections are conducted.

“I made a commitment coming into my administration that we would be open and transparent. And I'm all about opening up our elections for participation, so that's every aspect. And so I think this is just one more way that we're going to be able to do that," Hobbs said. 

A new state law will require the Secretary of State's Office to submit an Election Procedures Manual for review every odd-numbered year. 

Arizonans can review the new version of the draft and submit feedback by email at proceduresmanual@azsos.gov or by calling 602-542-8683 or 1-877-THE-VOTE (843-8683) by 5 p.m. on Sept. 6.
