MLK Day of Service
This Saturday volunteers with the Coconino Democratic Party will be collecting donations and distributing them to local charitable organizations to do our part to honor the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Distribute Door Hangers
The Legislature is back. Republicans continue their attack on public education. We have doorhangers telling voters how bad our local Republican legislators are when it comes to public education. Help us get them out.
If you are on our list of volunteers for canvassing, you’ll get an email with details. If you’re not, or you don’t remember, please email Allan Gerston (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let him know you’re willing to help.
This month we are partnering with the Arizona Democratic Party 15/30 Program to contact the over 20,000 Arizonans who left the Republican Party last year. Our goal is to call all 20,000 people to (1) thank them for being registered to vote and (2) acknowledge that we saw they changed their party affiliation in the last year and ask what sparked that change.
Phone banks are being set up so that folks will be able to enter their Zip Code to call voters in their area/county if they’d like.
Data gleaned from this effort NOW will be invaluable when we get to Get Out the Vote work in the Fall. The first week of the work was so productive that this project was extended to a month-long effort.
Let’s do something to start the year off right as we fight for democracy! Sign up for a shift here.

Share Our Job Listing
As you know by now, our Executive Committee has authorized the hiring of an Executive Director. This move will allow us to continue the tremendous expansion of party work that we have achieved over the last 4 years and lay the foundation for new leadership at the officer level beginning in 2023. This job is posted! Please share it with anyone you think may want to apply.
Our County Party will be the 4th in the State of Arizona to employ an Executive Director. (Maricopa, Navajo, and Pima Counties each employ their own directors as well as other staff.) This move will strengthen our party and its contribution to electing Democrats throughout the State of Arizona.
Over the past few years, we have employed a part-time office manager and several organizers as well as interns, but the management of the party has been left to our volunteer officers. It’s time to up our game to continue the work to turn Arizona blue.
Sign Candidate Petitions
You can now sign local candidate petitions online through the Arizona Secretary of State just as you do for statewide candidates!
Plus, you can make $5 donations to Clean Election Candidates such as Superintendent Kathy Hoffman and our Corporation Commission candidates through the same system!
