There are a lot of ideas across Arizona for ways to change the way the state conducts its elections — and Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer has several of his own.

Richer has released a 28-page document outlining some areas he thinks could use some adjustments.

Among his proposals would be to require all early ballots to be dropped off by the Friday before Election Day; to allow for in-person votes to be tabulated before Election Day; to reduce the number of contests on the ballot; and to elect county recorders in nonpartisan elections.

Richer joined The Show to talk through some of his proposals.
