Call Governor Ducey
DEMAND ALL-MAIL ELECTIONS TO PROTECT PRIMARY, GENERAL Citizens’ Engagement Beyond Voting (CEBV) calls us to Action: “To support a safe and secure election for the Primaries in August AND the General Election in November, it’s time to demand that Gov. Ducey order a statewide all mail-in ballot.
CALL GOV. DUCEY’S OFFICE @ 602-542-4331 NOW!
Tell him that an all mail-in ballot is the safest way to ensure that Arizona’s elections are accessible to all. Experts say that COVID-19 could subside a bit in the summer and re-emerge ferociously in the fall. We MUST ensure safe access to the ballot, and critical planning needs to start NOW.”

LD1 Legislative Update
On Thursday April 2nd, groups trying to put measures on the November ballot asked the Arizona Supreme Court to let them gather the remaining signatures they need online. They asked the state’s high court to declare that they have the same right as political candidates to use the existing E-Qual system to get the signatures they need.
Challenging the ban on online signatures are four groups hoping to put issues on the ballot:
- Save Our Schools Arizona which wants a limit on the number of vouchers of public dollars that can go to send students to private and parochial schools. https://sosarizona.org
- Invest in Education seeking a tax surcharge on incomes of individuals earning more than $250,000 a year to provide more dollars for K-12 schools. https://investined.com
- Smart and Safe Arizona which hopes to legalize the recreational use of marijuana.
- Arizonans for Second Chances, Rehabilitation and Public Safety seeking to give judges more discretion in sentencing and providing more earned-release credits for inmates.
In a filing on Friday April 3 with the Arizona Supreme Court, Attorney General Brnovich urged the justices to delay any action and instead wants the challengers to seek relief from the Governor. As of this mailing the Governor has not responded.
