PHOENIX -- Republican legislators said they must overhaul Arizona's early-voting process to limit voter fraud and reduce confusion at the polls.

But Democrats said the efforts are dirty tricks designed to disenfranchise Hispanic and low-income voters who tend to vote Democratic.

At least seven bills in the Senate and House this year seek to tweak the early-voting process.

One measure would remove voters from the permanent early-voting list if they don't vote by mail and fail to respond to a notice. Another measure would prohibit groups from collecting early ballots from voters for delivery to county election officials. Another measure seeks notarized signatures for early voters.

Election officials support some of the proposed changes, while voter rights groups said many of the measures would suppress voter participation.
