Want to stay informed after November 3 about what Indivisible and over 100 other organizations are planning?
Go to ProtectTheResults.org and sign up so you can stay informed about post-election day events as they unfold. Notifications will happen either through email or text.

Ballots have been mailed:
It’s been suggested that you mail your ballot by October 16. If you haven’t mailed your ballot yet, you might want to consider putting it in an official dropbox (dropbox locations listed right below this entry) or going inside the county building to vote in person. If you live in Yavapai County, that’s at 1015 Fair Street, Prescott. To find out if your ballot was mailed or if the elections office has received it, go to my.arizona.vote and click on “Check the Status of your Ballot-by-Mail.”  If you really want to make your ballot count, call or email 3 friends to see if they’re done the same.

VVP and the Environment:
The second article on the environment, Voter Values Issues: The Environment Part 2,” is available on the PI website: https://prescottindivisible.org/blog/
The VVP research team did a great job of researching and writing about this important issue. Greatly appreciated!

Blocking Amy – Call Today

enate Hearings End Oct 22nd, Vote Scheduled for Oct 26thBlocking Amy is an uphill battle but a worthy effort. When calling identify yourself as a concerned voter, that’s all.  Ask friends to call too; inundate them with calls. 

The following is a list of Republican Senators running for re-election whose prospects are at risk. Call them and suggest that a NO vote on the SCOTUS nominee may a way to get undecided and/or Independent votes.

The 202 number is for the Senate in DC, but calling a local office is sometimes more effective. I have picked state offices at random. Please note that several of them are on the JUDICIARY Committee, so indicated by an asterisk (*)

DemCast is an advocacy-based 501(c)4 nonprofit. We have made the decision to build a media site free of outside influence. There are no ads. We do not get paid for clicks. If you appreciate our content, please consider a small monthly donation.


Prescott Indivisible was founded in 2017, when Paul Hamilton and Nicole Romine put an ad in the local paper, requesting local progressives to show up at the library. Over 100 people lined up. In short order, we had formed a local chapter of the national Indivisible movement. Within six months we adopted a set of Guidelines that sets the framework in which we work, designed a logo and printed and sold t-shirts. Our mailing list quickly expanded from 100 to over 1,200. We usually have 100 or more attend our general monthly meetings.

Prescott Indivisible has a strong track record of activism. We adopted the team concept: Communication/Events; Voter Education and Elections; Education; Environment; Human Rights; Immigration and Peacekeepers to assist with safely issues. Initially we had a steering committee that consisted of volunteers. After our guidelines were adopted, the steering committee is made up of elected officers and members at large and the heads of the various teams, or their designees. A diverse group of community activists, social justice advocates and others that have volunteer ties to non-profits and religious organizations, the steering committee assists the teams when asked and sets the agendas.

Our teams and their members have worked diligently to make their voices heard. We have made thousands of calls, mailed hundreds of postcards to our legislators in Arizona and in congress. We have collaborated with like-minded organizations to advocate for issues of crucial importance to Arizona and the nation.
