FROM:     Paul Andrew, Mitchell, B.A., M.S.
          Counselor at Law

DATE:     December 11, 1996

SUBJECT:  Voting Rights Violation

Please send  me evidence of the fidelity (or surety) bond for the
office of Governor (Mr. Fife Symington).

I have  been deprived  of My  fundamental Right  to vote  in  the
November general  election, due  in part  to  negligence  by  the
offices of  Governor, Pima  County Registrar  of Voters, and Pima
County Recorder.  For authority, see the following:

     In this  state both  statutes and  judicial  decisions  have
     recognized the  fundamental right  of citizens generally not
     only to  vote but also to hold office (Gov. Code, Secs. 274,
     275, Carter  v. Comm. on Qualifications, etc. (1939) 14 Cal.
     2d 179,  182, 93  P.2d 140,  People v.  Washington (1869) 36
     Cal. 658, 662) ....

               [Fort v. Civil Service Com'n of County of Alameda]
                                            [392 P.2d 385 (1964)]

I presume  that all  employees of the State of Arizona are bonded
to  insure   for  damages  of  this  kind.    Please  confirm  my
presumption by  providing me  with  evidence  of  the  Governor's
fidelity (or surety) bond.

Thank you very much for your consideration.

Sincerely yours,

/s/ Paul Andrew Mitchell
