    “Let’s get the after work rush hour downtown to remind people to send their ballots in! Come and hold a spell-out sign on this high-visibility location over Congress St. (Across from the Administrative Building at 130 W. Congress). Let’s help get out the vote!”

    1. After listening at the Morrison Institute & CCEC forum on Arizona’s Voter Crisis (report published July 2018), I drove under this pedestrian bridge heading east. If you were heading west on Congress, you would have seen large yellow placards saying “VOTE NOW!”, held by members of this group. Hope it encouraged voter participation, since it is eroding according to the report aforementioned.
