Update on the referendum to block the Voter Suppression Act, HB 2305

Posted by AzBlueMeanie:

On Saturday, the Arizona Democratic Party held its Summer State Committee Meeting in Cottonwood, Arizona. A presentation on the referendum to block the Voter Suppression Act, HB 2305, was filmed by Blog for Arizona's Pamela Powers Hannley, who will post more about this meeting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghG6vesppWs.

Packets of information were provided to County Party Chairs and to state committee members at the meeting, along with walk lists for precincts. The Arizona Democratic Party effort will supplement the paid canvas being organized by the Protect Your Right to Vote Committee.

This is a call to action to Democratic volunteers, and to anyone who supports the sacrosanct right to vote for which Americans have fought and died to preserve. Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country and this state. Democrats should contact your local Democratic County Party Office (see contact information below) and your Legislative District chairs.

You may also contact the Arizona Advocacy Network to volunteer (see announcement below the fold).

Sign up to collect 10 signatures for the Citizens' VETO referendum on HB2305. 

Volunteers
are needed to gather signatures to place HB2305 on the November 2014
ballot as a Citizens' VETO referendum. Our deadline is September 12.

 

HB2305: 
  • Makes it harder to vote and reduces the ways voters can turn in their early ballots; 
  • Unfairly
    reduces signature requirements for Republican candidates while
    increasing the number for Democratic, Libertarian and Green candidates
    by over 4000% in some primaries. (Say goodbye to third parties)
  • Attacks constitutional citizens' initiative powers;
  • Attacks
    civic engagement groups and makes criminals out of volunteers and staff
    for helping citizens get their ballots delivered on time and counted. 
You can make a difference!  Help collect 10 signatures. Thank you!
