In recent years, Arizona officials have changed how voters cast ballots. Today, more than 70% of the population votes by mail. But that change doesn’t benefit Arizonans equally. Consider that only 26% of Native Americans live on a U.S. Postal Service route, which makes it more difficult to receive and vote by mail. All Voting is Local Arizona has these areas of focus:
- Ensuring Arizonans who are less likely to vote by mail, such as Native Americans, Latinos, African Americans, and students, can vote in-person–both early and on Election Day–at polling places that are accessible and are near where they live and work, and without waiting in a long line to vote.
- Advocating for fair rules for Arizonans casting ballots by mail or in person, so they know their votes will count.
- Fighting for voting programs in local jails to increase the number of Arizonans in jail who can cast a ballot in the 2020 election.
All Voting is Local Arizona’s fight to remove obstacles to the ballot has secured victories and called out unfair practices to achieve voting that is free, fair, and accessible to all.
