Idaho Secretary of State Race

4/29/22 KPVI:

While both Moon and McGrane said voter education and encouraging Idahoans to vote would be high priorities should they be elected, Souza said, “I have a different look at that. I do not think that it is the secretary of state’s or even the county clerk’s role to increase turnout for any one party or even turnout in general. That is the role of the partisan groups, the special interest groups, people who are very supportive of a candidate or a ballot measure. That’s what they are supposed to be doing.”

“What the role of the secretary is, is to make sure the election laws are enforced and they are clear, and they are understood by all the citizens,” Souza said, “and let the special interest groups bring out their voters."

This is what I want.  Encouraging voter turnout really means encouraging people who may not much care or know anything.
