Mark Finchem is Running for Arizona’s Secretary of State — a known Election Denier
Mark Finchem is the leading Republican candidate in line with being Arizona’s next secretary of state. He also is in line to be able to get his wishes of banning electronic voting machines and forcing the state to use paper-only ballots as well as counting them by hand.
Finchem has joined the GOP crowd that has endlessly echoed Donald Trump’s election fraud claims. The role of the secretary of state has become an important role due to the ever-growing threat of election-deniers being in charge of elections. The Secretary of State has always been seen as nonpartisan and responsible for the smooth running of elections and now has evolved to becoming something much more partisan.
