Yesterday, thousands of Arizonans waited in line for hours to vote in the Presidential Preference Election. Maricopa County, the most populous and active voting county, reduced their number of polling locations from 200 in 2012 to only 60! The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, in coordination with Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell, made this decision to cut corners in order to save money.
We have also heard many stories of voter registration problems. Were you registered as the wrong party or no party?
On Monday, March 28th at 10 am, the House Elections Committee will meet publicly with AZ Secretary of State Michelle Reagan and County Recorder Helen Purcell. They will be taking public comments and we urge you to attend and share your story! These officials must be held accountable and we must not allow this to happen again.
WHAT: A Special Meeting of the House Elections Committee to address voter concerns from the Presidential Preference Election. Share your story!
WHEN: Monday, March 28th at 10 am
WHERE: House Hearing Room 4, Arizona State Capitol
