Want to stay up-to-date on Arizona elections? Sign up for The Recount, a new newsletter

A "Vote Here" sign sits outside the U.S. Post Office on Fillmore St. and 1st Ave. on Nov. 7, 2022, in Phoenix.

Arizona will play a crucial and outsized role in the upcoming 2024 election cycle.

That means statewide coverage of elections and how they work is more important than ever before.

So, The Arizona Republic is launching a new newsletter called The Recount.

It's a yearlong project designed primarily to inform Arizonans — with some insights for national election junkies and politicos, too.

We'll bring you on-the-ground reporting from all corners of our desert swing state, which trailblazed election innovations such as mail-in voting in the 1990s. Arizona has more recently become a hotbed of unfounded voting conspiracies, and we'll dive into how that impacts election officials, voters and democracy.

We know you're busy, so we'll do our best to keep each dispatch brief.

Best of all, you don’t have to be an azcentral.com subscriber to get access. Simply let us know where to email the newsletter, and you’re on your way.

If you sign up, our newsletter will appear in your email inbox on Mondays. The first edition is set for Feb. 19.

We hope to see you then.
