Our Priorities

All Voting is Local Arizona is fighting back against the harmful anti-voter bills being considered by the Arizona Legislature. (You can join the fight here.)

But, lawmakers don’t call all the shots in elections, so All Voting is Local Arizona is leading county-by-county efforts to guide local decision-makers to action that will protect our freedom to vote. We’re urging county officials to: make elections more accessible; meaningfully collaborate with Native American Tribes and voters—whose voices are often left out; and provide opportunities, such as additional online tools and meetings, for the public to help shape election planning so that all voices are heard.
