“When voters don't have reasonable access to voting, they are being denied the right to vote.” – Samantha Pstross, Executive Director of the Arizona Advocacy Network
Yesterday’s special Elections Committee focused on last week’s election fiasco, but it was abruptly adjourned to go to the House Floor. Rep. Ken Clark invited everyone to watch the floor vote on a bill that will have painful lasting effects on our election system for decades to come, SB1516 – Campaign Finance Overhaul. He wrote an excellent piece on this drastic bill. When lawmakers saw the crowd, they decided to pull SB1516 off the agenda. However, it will most likely go back for a final vote sometime this week.
UPDATE: Yesterday, an in-depth poll revealed that 70% of Arizona voters oppose SB1516 and 84% said they would be less likely to vote for someone who supported SB1516.
On Monday, the House of Representatives will be voting on SB1516. This is our last chance to tell our lawmakers to RESPECT VOTERS AND OPPOSE SB1516. Please contact your representative and other representatives TODAY.
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.Read more
