Arizona historian and author Jack August has died at age 63.

Arizona voters head to the polls Tue, Nov. 8 for the 2016 U.S. general election. The primary focus this election, of course, is the presidential race between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton. Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party Candidate Jill Stein also appear on the ballot.

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton has filed paperwork that will enable him to run for Arizona Secretary of State in 2018.

The Arizona secretary of state's office has figured out why its new election reporting website repeatedly froze and crashed during the Tuesday primary.

A judge is set to hear a challenge to a voter initiative raising the state's minimum wage from $8.05 per hour to $12 an hour by 2020.

The lawsuit filed by the Arizona Restaurant Association against the minimum wage initiative says many or all of the signatures are invalid because of problems with the signature-gatherers or the petition sheets themselves.

The group backing the initiative says they're confident it will survive the challenge.
