PHOENIX — Maricopa County has unveiled an elections website designed to make it easier for voters to find and access information.
Recorder Stephen Richer told KTAR News 92.3 FM on Monday that the website — meant to display elections and voter registration information — hadn’t been updated in 25 years.
“We’ve put a lot of emphasis on communicating with voters over the past year and a half,” Richer said. “The website is still a place where are a lot of voters go to find information.”
The site features simplified navigation and is designed to avoid getting voters lost when searching for material.
It also includes other ease of access features, including allowing users to toggle between English and Spanish.
All elections and voter registration pages will be redirected to the site.
“We hope that this new website makes all of that new information easier to access,” Richer said.
Richer added he wants to use the site as a one-stop shop to help dispel election misinformation.
“It is absolutely meant to play a part in improving that conversation about our elections,” Richer said. “It’s one part of the puzzle.”
