LD 20 Volunteers Work to Elect Democrats and Promote Issues of Concern
We Join Forces with
Groups with Similar Concerns
We work with community groups to pass ballot propositions and fight for justice.
This year we worked hard gathering signatures to get propositions on the 2022 ballot on Stopping Dark Money, Voter Protection, Limit on Health Care Interest Costs, and Justice for All.
Now we are gathering signatures to Stop Voucher Expansion. A referendum to overturn a law the legislature passed to expand the voucher system to everyone. See the home page for details. If enough signature are collected, the law will be on hold until voters can decide in the 2024 election.
Petition activities are listed at this site
Decorating bikes and gathering signatures at Cyclovia
COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS
Trash pickup on West Ajo Way is a recurring project. We work with ADOT authorization to collect trash on a specific area and our sign proclaims that we have adopted that stretch of the highway. Volunteers and ideas are needed.

Get Out the Vote
At election time we work actively to motivate voters and provide information about candidates and propositions. In 2020 we sent out postcards to more than 12,000 voters.

We Help Elect
We work with the county and state parties as well as local Democratic party candidates to collect signatures, distribute campaign literature and to phone registered voters in our precincts and more widely. We help voters get information about their candidates.
We do not take sides in contested primaries, but do provide information about all candidates and how to contact and help them.

Getting to Know Neighboring Voters
One of the best ways of getting our message out is by meeting our neighbors. Volunteers have access to lists of voters and use this information to contact people with information about candidates and issues, especially in their own neighborhoods.
We Register Voters and Talk about Issues
Voter Registration is a part of our community outreach efforts at public events as well as at Libraries and college campuses. Some PCs have set up tables in their yards to reach neighbors. In conjunction with this we try to answer questions about any aspect of citizen participation which may come up and to distribute literature about candidates, petitions, referendums, contacting officials, etc. We also print our own informational literature. As COVID pressures lessen, we will be out frequently. Volunteers will get training on the basics of voter registration.
We are always looking for creative ways to bring voter registration materials to the community. If you know of upcoming community events in LD3, PLEASE let us know!
Volunteers and Ideas Needed!
We can't win without the help of lots and lots of people. Please tell us that you will join our efforts.
There are many tasks, depending on the election cycle. We are looking for people to post on social media, address mailings, help with fund raising, talk with your neighbors, write letters to the editor, and more.
