Here’s How I Plan to Protect Arizona Voters Rights:
Stop using the Secretary of State Office for partisan purposes. I renounce using the Office to support a partisan candidate or for political games.
Stop the influence of “Dark Money” by providing accurate and timely disclosure of the source of all political contributions. Arizonan’s deserve to know who is trying to influence their votes.
Educate voters and facilitate voting in Arizona by using Help America Vote Act (HAVA) money sitting at the Secretary of State office to make the voting process easier to access and less confusing.
Empower Independents in the political process. No registered Independent has even been elected to a statewide office or the legislature, yet Independents make up the largest voter bloc in the state. The Secretary of State can help Independents understand their rights, make it easier to vote, and run for office.

What is the dual-track voting system and how does it affect me?
The dual-track voting system is new this election. It divides voters into federal and state categories. If you voted in prior elections, you are in the state group and will be able to vote in all elections, state and federal. If you recently registered using the federal registration form and did not provide documents proving US citizenship you may be on the federal list and will only be able to vote for congressional candidates in your district. If you are currently on the federal list but wish to qualify for the state list, you can bring proof of citizenship to your County Recorder’s office prior to the October 6th deadline for registering. To confirm that you are on the state voter list visit https://voter.azsos.gov/VoterView/RegistrantSearch.do or Call your County Recorder’s Office.
