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
- Vote in the Primary: Most legislative districts are predominantly Republican or Democrat, which means that most elections in Arizona are decided in the primary. Because so few people vote in the primary, those who do get the biggest bang for their buck.
- For Independents, Choose the Primary With the Greatest Impact on the Elections: If you are one of the growing number of Independents, select the party that dominates in your area. For example, if your district is predominantly Republican, choose the Republican primary. If your district is primarily Democrat, choose the Democratic primary. Independents can choose which primary they want to vote in at the polls or request an early ballot for the primary of choice by contacting the Secretary of State’s office.
