Voting PSA

Today in Arizona it's Midterm Primary Election Day...

It's a lot of work for a small amount of pay but I'm working as a Precinct Inspector (Supervisor) today. Every election I work in some capacity and always say "I'm not sure I want to do this again" when it's over. But I always do the next time because it allows me to be involved in government and the political process in a nonpartisan way and I truly like interacting with the voters who turn out. It's important to me that I can, in one small central big city precinct, keep the integrity of the process of that one little piece under my purview.

In 1974 I turned 18, the first year 18 year olds were allowed to vote and since then have rarely missed an election, even small ones, like the school board. Early Ballot voting made that easier and will help bring the process into the age where going to a designated precinct polling place will not be necessary.  I've heard all the excuses over the years on why not to vote, why people aren't registered and why they couldn't get around to voting.


- Register to vote

- Arizona party choices:
  Democrat
  Green Party
  Libertarian
  Republican
  No Party Preference (In primary can choose to vote on one of any parties ballot)

- Vote by Early Ballot (mail or drop off)

- Get involved in either a nonpartisan or partisan way
