Community Leaders and Activists Address Problems, Solutions to Election Issues In Arizona

Phoenix, AZ– Arizona’s March 22 Presidential Preference Election was a fiasco by every standard. Five hour wait times, inadequate polling locations and incorrect voter registrations were only a few problems voters experienced and it’s not over yet. Arizona is now embroiled in two pending lawsuits and an investigation by the Department of Justice. All this makes it clear that it’s time for a conversation on how to improve elections in Arizona. That’s why voting rights activists and community leaders will come together on May 9th for an important conversation on voting and elections in Arizona.

The Know Your Vote Town Hall on Monday May 9th will feature a panel of speakers moderated by former KJZZ reporter Nadine Arroyo Rodriguez. Panelists include Mi Familia Vota Arizona Director, Raquel Teran, Maricopa County Board Supervisor Steve Gallardo, Arizona Advocacy Network Executive Director Samantha Pstross, Tova Wang, Senior Democracy Fellow at the Demos Institute, Maricopa County Recorder Candidate Adrian Fontes and Alejandra Gomez, Co-Director at Arizona Center for Empowerment. We’ll discuss solutions for a modern, secure voter registration system that gives everyone access to vote. In the age of computers, replacing Arizona’s outdated voter registration system with a more modern and secure one is common sense.

Lunch will be served. Reserve your free tickets here: http://bit.ly/1TxarWV
