Arizona’s Secretary of State says the August election will go smoothly after the issues with the March and May elections.

Michele Reagan says she learned her lesson well – especially when it comes to special-election pamphlet issues.

“One of the things that we overlooked was sending out a news advisory, or posting something on our website,” she said.

Nearly 200,000 households did not get one of these pamphlets before the May 17 election. The Secretary of State’s office said it was an error with their printing contractor.

Reagan also said many voters gave her great ideas for reducing gridlock – for example, a safe curbside box to drop off mail-in or early ballots.

Whatever actions are taken, Reagan says her office has learned from its mistakes and will make sure the August 30 election goes smoothly.
