Today is the last day to vote, Election Day

Thank you, Arizonans, for casting a record number of ballots before Election Day! If you have not done so, you still have a chance to make your voice heard in this election. Today is the time to get out to vote. Key races that directly impact children, such as for school board and legislative seats, are often decided by just a few votes. We need everyone who cares about children to vote like our future depends on it.

Voting is one of the important ways you can ensure your priorities are heard on the public policies that impact health, education, and the racial inequities in our society. When the newly elected legislators begin session in January, we will need all of you to stay passionate and engaged about improving the well-being of children. It will take all of us to keep policy makers accountable to their commitments.

Stay engaged by using the resources on our new and updated website, and encourage others to get involved and to stay informed on issues you support by signing up for our weekly policy news.

Every vote matters. Thanks again for supporting children and families in Arizona.
