State legislatures control our right to vote, our right to protect the vulnerable, and even our rights to our own bodies. It's time to take back the Arizona state legislature and prevent the rising tide of those spouting hate and harmful misinformation that simply does not represent decent Arizonans.

Arizona VOTER GUIDE

Your Freedoms are being taken away by Extremist Republicans.

Arizona is an increasingly Democratic but very gerrymandered state that needs your vote to correct the imbalance in the state legislature and end the Republican trifecta. Unfortunately, redistricting has favored the Republicans again so Democrats need to work twice as hard to get their voters to fight back.

Democracy

Republican state legislators are working on legislation to overturn the will of the voters; giving THEM the power to decide the outcome of elections regardless of the vote tally.   

81% of elected Republicans in AZ tried to overturn the 2020 election.

Abortion and Birth Control

All abortions have stopped in Arizona as June 2022. Most Republicans running for office in AZ in 2022 and currently in the legislature believe birth control should be illegal. 

Historic Biden and Democrat Bills in US Congress

Every single Republican US Representative voted AGAINST historic legislation to bring money and resources to Arizona. Now they tout the money in their ads.  Thanks, Democrats!

  • American Rescue Plan ($4.2 Billion for AZ)
  • Infrastructure Bill ($5 Billion for AZ)
  • Inflation Reduction Act ($4.1 Billion for AZ )
  • PACTS Act for Veterans hurt by toxic burn pit exposure
  • CHIPS and Science Act

AZ-Thwarting the will of the Voter

Republican legislators have ignored the will of Arizonans on a number of issues. Among those issues are the minimum wage, school funding, ease of voting, the ability of localities to tighten rules where appropriate, and the initiative process itself. This has been going on for a long time. Even the voter-initiated Arizona Voter Protection Act―passed in 1998―has not deterred Republicans; they have repeatedly ignored its provisions.

BACKSLIDING ON POLICE REFORM IN ARIZONA

The Republican-controlled Arizona legislature has voted down bills intended to increase police accountability and instead has passed bills further shielding police officers and departments from oversight and accountability. So, while most of the country is moving forward on police reform and addressing racist and excessive use of force, Arizona has been backsliding to even further shield police officers accused of unnecessary violence against the public they are supposed to serve.

REPUBLICANS SUPPRESS VOTING & SILENCE CITIZENS

The United States is a backsliding democracy. Arizona Republicans have introduced about 10% of all voter suppression legislation in the country. Republicans don’t want you to vote—especially if you are young, a person of color, or poor. The Republican attack on voting rights is not just anti-Democrat; it is anti-democracy. Gutting the citizen initiative process, raising barriers to voting by mail, severely reducing the number of polling places, limiting acceptable forms of voter IDs, disenfranchising former offenders—these are just some of the ways that Republican policies are undermining the fundamental democratic institution of a citizen’s right to vote.
