Did you know? On Election Day 2008, Arizona had the 6th worst voter turnout rate in the nation1. We can do better than that, Arizona!
It’s election season, and the people of this state need everyone to get registered, get informed, and then get out and vote! Here are some dates to keep in mind as you plan your participation:
The last day for voter registration is Tuesday, October 9th, 2012. This is not only the last day to register in order to participate in this year’s election, but if you are already registered to vote, you can spend this time encouraging and helping others to get registered! For more information, please contact the Secretary of State’s office: (www.azsos.gov), and you can even use their site to get registered online!
Also, Friday, October 26, 2012 is the last day to Request an Early Ballot, so if you don’t want to hassle with the lines or potentially missing your chance at the polls, contact the Pima County Recorder’s Office: (www.recorder.pima.gov), and request that ballot. You can do it online, by phone, or by mail.
onians, who value the democratic process to act upon that by voting and encouraging others to do the same, so mark these dates:
- October 9th, 2012 – Last Day for Voter Registration
- October 26, 2012 – Last Day to Request an Early Ballot
- November 6th, 2012 – Election Day!
