IRC Blocking Public Input – Sign the Petition!

The Independent Redistricting Commission (IRC) has provided mapping software that is unusable by the general public.  The process of drawing new district lines includes public input.  The public cannot give input on the maps with this unusable tool the IRC has provided.

Without public input, which is required by law, this is not a fair and transparent process.

Our friends at Democrats of the Red Rocks have started a petition demanding a change in the IRC process for taking public comment and making the comments available to public.  Please sign!


Training on Dave’s Maps

The Intertribal Council of Arizona is hosting a training on an alternative mapping tool that may be useful for public input. The training is next Monday at 2:00 on Zoom. 

The IRC Grid Map has been uploaded to Dave’s Redistricting App and should be visible in a public folder.


Prep for IRC Public Hearings

The Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission (IRC) is holding public hearings this week through October 7th.

The IRC issued its Grid Maps last week, opening up a 23 day public comment period. This Saturday is the first hearing near us – in Prescott. The last hearing on Thursday, October 7 will include sites in Flagstaff and Kayenta. In Flagstaff, we’ll again be at the High Country Conference Center with the hearing beginning at 4 pm.  (Here’s the full statewide schedule.

The Arizona Democratic Party urges you to attend a Zoom info session before attending a public hearing. Sign up here.


Last Chance to Sign for AZ Voting Rights and Fair Taxation

We are into the last 4 days to sign referenda petitions. 

Check out locations and times for this week’s opportunities to sign.

Build Back Better Status

All 50 Democratic votes plus Vice President Harris will be required for Dems to deliver on their 2020 campaign promises. 

Seven in ten Americans support President Biden’s Build Back Better plan. 

Sometimes ordinary people are smarter than Senators. We understand the difference between value and price tags.

This topic is scripted by our Legislative Committee in this week’s Federal Alert.
Please take action!


Tomorrow is the Last Day for SCMs to Return Proxies

In deference to the Women’s March (next story), the Arizona Democratic Party changed the date of its State Committee Meeting from October 2 to September 25. If you are a state committee member, check your email for notice of this change and a link to register or give a proxy. Questions should be addressed to statecommittee@azdem.org. If you registered for October 2, you will need to RE-REGISTER for September 25. Proxies should also be mailed to that email address.

For all Democrats:  The Resolutions Committee has recommended that the full State Committee adopt two resolutions. Please read these and if you have questions or want to voice your position, contact one of our Coconino County State Committee Members.  Our County Chair, Ann Heitland, attended the Resolutions Committee Meeting where these proposals were presented and the committee’s vote recommending them occurred. Please feel free to contact her if you have questions. There will also be voting on by-law amendments.

Women’s March – Flagstaff
