Civix and Slice
Get some pizza with your civics!
So you get your ballot on (or before) election day, and THEN it hits you:
"What are all those offices on the ballot supposed to do?
Maybe I'll just skip some of them."
But don't do that!
Instead, attend "Civix and a Slice", either August 2 or August 11,
to learn the responsibilities of each office and
why your one vote is important!

Statewide Forums and Debates
Don't forget to watch the ongoing candidate debates for the primary elections, sponsored by the Clean Elections Commission!
Statewide candidate debates for those offices being contested within a party
can be viewed live or later at your convenience, with PBS Horizon host

Legislative district debates are occurring in towns/cities across Arizona, where the primary is contested. The Commission staff is utilizing two AZ Capitol Times reporters as moderators of all legislative debates as they understand
the `real' issues at the Legislature.
Information about all debates can be found HERE..
Watch, and share the information on your facebook pages,
other social media and web sites.

STILL TIME: ACTION NEEDED on CENSUS QUESTION:
Submit a public comment by August 7 opposing the addition of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census
The League of Women Voters vehemently opposes this measure, believing it will result in an undercount of those living in the United States and will jeopardize fair redistricting and the determination of the allocation of resources. Such a question is anti-immigrant in nature and will further instill fear, preventing immigrants from participating fully.
To submit your comment before the August 7 deadline, visit https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2018/06/08/2018-12365/proposed-information-collection-comment-request-2020-census.
You can read LWVUS President Chris Carson's full response
to the citizenship question HERE.
