Several Arizona election bills approved by legislature

Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - After already passing the Senate, several election bills were approved in the Arizona House making relatively minor changes to election procedures. 

One would raise the threshold for triggering an automatic recount in close elections.

Another would require the Game and Fish Department to hand out voter registration links or forms when people sign up for hunting and fishing licenses.

A third bill aims to requires court clerks to report new felony convictions monthly so voter registrations can be canceled.

A fourth directs county election officials to count and publicly report the number of uncounted early ballots on election night, if practical.

Still, lawmakers voted down a handful of bills that were universally opposed by democrats.
