I couldn’t have said this better than Cathi Herrod from the Center for AZ Policy.  (www.azpolicy.org.)

Let’s Prove “Them” Wrong

I’ve seen some early balloting numbers, and the projected turnout for the August 24 Primary Election is even lower than expected. To make matters worse, some of the in-state pundits are predicting a low pro-life, pro-family voter turnout! The importance of next Tuesday’s Primary Election shouldn’t be underestimated. Don’t let the number of contested primaries or robo-calls deter you from actively participating. Many state legislative races will be decided in the Primary Election, not the General. Let’s prove the pundits wrong by flooding the polls on August 24.



How You CAN Make a Difference in the Primary

Now is the time for you to get involved. Help me spread the word about the importance of the Primary Election:

  • Tell your friends about the Primary Election on Facebook and Twitter. On Election Day, I’ll be posting a status update to my Facebook page and the CAP Facebook page about getting out the vote. Copy and paste the text to your status to encourage your friends and family to go vote!
  • Expect a CAP Action Alert on Election Day. Like all of our emails, you can share it with your friends with a click. Forward it to your address book to make sure people know the importance of Tuesday’s primary.
  • Go to azvoterguide.com and print off the Primary Election flier. Take it to church and school. Pass it out to your friends and family. Encourage those in your circle to be informed on where the candidates stand on the issues and remind them of the August 24 Primary.


Preparing for Election Day

There are some simple things you can do to make sure you’re prepared to vote on Election Day:

  • Print out your personalized Voter Guide at azvoterguide.com to take into the voting booth.
  • Find your voting location in advance. (Use Internet Explorer if you are having trouble with this link.)
  • The polls are open from 6:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 24. If you still have your early ballot (like me) I recommend not mailing it at this point. Just drop it off at any polling place on Election Day (you don’t have to wait in line!). Your early ballot will be counted as long as it is received by your county by 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 24.
