Action Alert: All Mail Election

Update: April 8: All 15 Arizona County Recorders have called on the Legislature to allow them to mail ballots to all registered voters for the 2020 Primary and General Election.

We join Maricopa County Democratic Party Chair Steve Slugocki in this Call to Action:

During this difficult period, the government’s number one priority should be the health and the safety of our community. That is why we cannot force voters to choose between voting in-person at a polling location and following CDC guidelines and staying at home.

We’re asking you to join the Maricopa County Democratic Party and Adrian Fontes in urging Doug Ducey to take immediate action NOW and change Arizona to an all-mail election for the remainder of the year.

The process is simple and we’re able to do it with just a few steps:

STEP ONE: Go to https://azgovernor.gov/engage/form/contact-governor-ducey

STEP TWO: Select “I am making a comment” under Reason for Contacting the Governor and fill out the form. Please select “Coronavirus COVID-19″ for the subject

STEP THREE: Write your comment. Below is a prewritten message, feel free to adjust to make it more personal or send as is.

“As a constituent, I urge you to take immediate action NOW and change Arizona to an all vote by mail election for the remainder of the year.

should be forced to decide between voting and staying healthy. We NEED to switch to an all-mail election for the rest of the year to keep our voters, poll workers, and community safe. 

We have been warned by public health officials that millions of Americans could die if we do not do our part to avoid person-to-person contact. No one should be forced to decide between voting and staying healthy. We NEED to switch to an all-mail election for the rest of the year to keep our voters, poll workers, and community safe. 

I urge you to work with your County Recorders and Secretary of State and make this switch to ensure the safety of our community and the integrity of our elections.”
