Petition Drive: Come Sign!
July 24 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
We are fortunate in Arizona that our State Constitution allows Arizona voters to veto bad legislation through a process called referendum. We are collecting signatures to reverse some of the damage the Arizona Legislature did to our state this Spring by placing six issues on the ballot for an up or down vote by Arizona citizens.
On Saturday, July 24 from 11 am to 3 pm, we’ll be collecting signatures on the porch at the Old Ice House at 201 E. Birch. Any voter registered in AZ
We are circulating petitions for Arizona Deserves Better and for Invest in AZ. If enough valid signatures are collected by late September the bad new laws will be suspended until voters make their wishes known in November 2022. We are also circulating for Stop Dark Money, which must file by next July. We will show you the laws and explain further when we talk, but here’s a brief summary:
- Arizona Deserves Better seeks to reverse new laws that make it harder to vote by mail and more expensive for counties to conduct elections and that imperil ballot secrecy.
- Invest in AZ seeks to reverse the huge tax cut given to multi-millionaires. This so-called “flat tax” undercuts the voter-approved funding for public schools and puts Arizona’s fiscal health in danger generally.
We will be tabling at other locations and other times — watch the calendar! July 24 is part of a statewide action organized by Arizona Deserves Better.
ATTENTION CIRCULATORS: A notary will be on-site to notarize and accept the return of petitions you have completed.
