Arizona Democrats to Hold Binding Internet Vote

The online initiative is designed to boost the number of voters in the primary, which saw numbers slump to less than 10,000 ballots in 1996, said Arizona Democratic Party political director Cortland Coleman.

"We need to get more people out there to vote," Coleman said, adding that about 40,000 people -- "if not more" -- are expected to take part in the primary.

Coleman said the party (www.azdem.org) is currently in contract negotiations with several different software vendors, and an agreement would "absolutely" be reached by the end of the year.

"Security, quality and cost -- when those three functions are met, we'll be inking a deal," he said.
