Dear Warriors, The Northern Arizona Coordinated Campaign office in Flagstaff opened with a joyous blue wave as some 70 supporters marched from our office, around Heritage Square, and up to the second floor of the Sunwest Bank building. Democrats and friends from every part of our community joined to welcome Regional Organizing Director Curtis Kinnaman and Regional Political Director Dylan Baca to Coconino County and celebrate the opening of the Regional Office. We are ready to canvass!We have a fresh new look for our booth this summer, and we had a blast rolling it out for the Flagstaff Hullabaloo Festival. Candidates stopped by to meet with voters, AAA petition circulators gathered dozens of signatures, and we registered some new voters. Children are painting new signs for our 4 th of July Float. We invite them to choose an idea that is an important value and create art around that word. After I explained to one young artist why we offered “Voice,” she commented that we should edit that one to say “Vote your Voice.” The children know what’s up. We will save Democracy for them.We are all in this together, and we will win in November.

Who Votes in Coconino County?During an election year, campaign strategists and political observers focus on understanding the population of likely voters and how they are best reached. We are no exception! So we’ve been scrutinizing the latest voter registration statistics from Coconino County (posted and updated regularly on their Elections website). Here are some highlights that we should all be aware of as we think about canvassing, voter education, and communication efforts.There are 103,118 registered voters in Coconino County (all numbers are current as of April 1, 2024).Of these, 17,598 or 17 % are “inactive” voters (meaning, no correct mailing address is on file for these voters). Many of these are likely students who registered while at NAU but have since moved (perhaps out of the County).Just under half (48 %) of the County’s voters reside in Flagstaff.The other half of the voters are mostly in unincorporated areas – though 4 % are in Page and about 2 % each in Sedona and Williams.Democrats are 40 % of the registered voters, Republicans 27 %, and Independents are 33 %. Libertarian, Green, and No Labels party members together constitute less than 2 % of the total.County residents vote in any of three different state legislative districts (LD’s), depending on their address. Only 2300 live in LD 1, 63,790 in LD 6, and 37,029 in LD 7. All three LD’s cross into other counties, so we rely on building strong collaborations when we focus on state legislative races.
We know that it takes different means of communication, and different messaging, to reach and to persuade different components of our County population. If you are interested in learning more and assisting with our communications efforts, please email today!Observing at the Polls and in the Elections Center: Helping and Representing VotersHelp keep our elections safe, secure, legal, and transparent!  Learn more about roles with the ADP Voter Protection Team here. Poll observers are the eyes and ears ensuring that any difficulties at a polling place are detected and corrected quickly. Meanwhile observers who watch the receiving of ballots on Election Night, and the tabulation of ballots at the central Elections Center, are our best defense against distrust in our elections. The Arizona Democratic Party supplies training and excellent support for our observers. Our huge county has dozens of diverse polling places – help us cover the ground so that all registered voters can exercise their right to vote! Contact about your interest.Juneteenth Celebration in FlagstaffJuneteenth is a holiday celebrated on June 19 each year to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the United States. Our local Juneteenth events this year are organized and hosted by the Southside Community Association, the Lived Black Experience, and Coconino County’s African Diaspora Advisory Council.Help the Coordinated Campaign recruit effective organizers!
The Arizona Democratic Party seeks to hire full-time organizers to fuel its Coordinated Campaign through this election cycle. People with deep connections to local communities and commitment to our democracy are being hired now. If you know of good candidates – or if you are interested yourself in stepping up! – use this link to learn more and to apply.
Organizer PositionsPlease Welcome Our New Youth Organizer!
“Howdy!My name is Joan Arrow and I am excited to be the lead youth organizer for the CC Democrats. Flagstaff is my home and it is where I plan to raise my family so it means the world to me that we turn Arizona blue! Something I have been working on with other young progressives in the community is organizing a great group for Arizona progressives together called the Arizona Progressive Action Committee (AZPAC). We get together for canvassing, social events, a book club, and any other community work that promotes progressivism in Coconino County. We are currently laying the groundwork so that we can hit the ground running when NAU students return in the fall to turn Arizona not just blue – but progressive!”To contact Joan, email her at
