Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has signed a bill repealing a 2013 elections overhaul championed by Republicans that left voter-rights groups incensed.
Brewer signed House Bill 2196 Thursday. The action cancels a November election where voters would have had the final say.
Republicans passed the elections overhaul in the final hours of the 2013 legislative session. The wide-ranging bill angered Democrats, some conservative Republicans outside the Legislature and third-party candidates.
They came together to collect more than 146,000 signatures to place the law on hold and put it on the November ballot.
Republicans this year say they voted to repeal their law to follow the will of the voters. Democrats opposed the repeal and said citizens should be able to vote on the overhaul.
