  1. Uhhh, censored, you can’t vote for who doesn’t run; unless you’re saying that the Dems prevented them from running?

    What amazes me is that more Dems voted in Ward 6 (which was uncontested) than Ward 3.

    • maybe more latinos would run if they thought they wouldn’t be treated like bernie sanders was treated.

      • There are several women’s groups in Arizona working and encouraging women (Latinas too) to run for office: Arizona List, Arizona Women’s Political Caucus, Las Adelitas.

        • thank you carolyn hope they have success. I hope I can go out and campaign for latina democrats running for office. latinos too!

    • You’re welcome. Glad the Elections results came out on time at 8 p.m. so we didn’t have to wait into the evening.
