50 years. It’s a milestone to be proud of.
2012 marked five decades of creating statewide forums that have guided our state’s civic, political, business and community leadership. Arizona Town Hall gatherings have helped shape Arizona across a wide array of areas. Town Hall gatherings inspired the creation of the merit selection system for electing judges, the Arizona Department of Revenue, the Department of Environmental Quality and innovations in education, to name just a few. Harder to measure but even more important is the impact that Town Hall gatherings have on participants who report a greater engagement in and knowledge of their community. Many Town Hall participants are inspired to enter public service as a result of the Town Halls.
We are proud of all we’ve achieved over the last 50 years. With your participation we are looking forward to creating more solutions that will shape our future.
Tips for making your vote count
As we approach election season, here are tips for making your vote count.
- Make it easy on yourself: With early voting and mail-in ballots, Arizona has gone to great lengths to make voting as hassle-free as possible. It’s as simple as signing up for the Permanent Early Voting List, which assures that PEVL registrants receive a mail-in ballot each election. Maricopa County voters can sign up here:
- Choose wisely: If you are among Arizona’s growing number of independent or unaffiliated voters, you must select a partisan ballot – Republican or Democrat – in order to participate in the Primary Election. When it comes to that choice, pick a ballot of the party that dominates your community. Generally-speaking, this is the simplest way to ensure you have a say in the largest number of competitive Primary races.
