Attention voters, activists, elections officials and all with a stake in Arizona’s elections! We invite you to come out to ASU College of Law on January 9, 2014 to hear about the state of voting in Arizona and share your voting experiences. The hearing is free, nonpartisan, and open to the public! There will be three formal panels of witnesses testifying on topics such as voting discrimination, registration and polling place problems, access for voters with disabilities and language minorities, and more!
This hearing is part of a series of fact-finding hearings hosted by the National Commission on Voting Rights across the country to learn more about the current landscape of elections. Over the past few years, numerous states have enacted restrictive voting laws, while many others continue to grapple with recurring election administration and electoral reform challenges. The Commission will document what keeps voters from the ballot box and election reform efforts that expand access.
We want to hear from you! The public can participate by providing oral testimony during the hearing’s public comment periods and by submitting written testimony by email to NCVR@lawyerscommittee.org. You can also submit written testimony or request assistance writing your testimony by visiting AZHearing.lawyerscommittee.org.
RSVP is encouraged, but not required. RSVP here. (Por favor, confirme su asistencia aquí.)
For questions, please contact Erandi Zamora at ezamora@lawyerscommittee.org.
