D26 Democrats Monthly Meeting CANCELLED

Why: "A Celebration of Our Candidates," a gathering of local and state-wide Democrats that is happening in our district during our meeting time. Now, I know how many of your would shun this awesomely-fun event in order to attend our June meeting, so we think it's best to cancel the June meeting, and join Democrats from all over the county and state as they gather to celebrate our 2014 candidates. This event is in D26, so let's have a good showing. If you were planning on attending meeting, please attend this event instead. *We will have a notary for last second PCs! They are due the next day, so please don't miss your chance to represent Democrats in your neighborhood.

Becoming a Democratic PC via a Write In Ballot

Please Follow These Easy Steps:

1) Print the affidavit found here (this is the ONLY affidavit you should use: don't use the one you may have had for the May 28th deadline)

2) Fill out the affidavit and have your signature notarized (your bank should have a notary, but we will have one at our PC Pizza Party as well)

Among other things, you will need to know your Legislative District # (26) and the name of your precinct. These can be found by filling out the district-finder form here. Remember: New district lines were drawn in 2011. It is important you have the correct information.

3) Make sure the notarized affidavit is received at the following address by June 11th. Mail it at least 3 days before it is due, or bring it to our PC Pizza party on Sunday, June 8th and we will turn it on for you.

Maricopa County Elections Dept.
ATTN: Kristi/Berta
111 S 3rd Ave
Phoenix AZ 85003

4) Write in your own name on the August 26th Primary Ballot If you receive your ballot by mail, it should arrive in the 1st week of August.

Once you turn in your ballot, congratulations, you will be the newest D26 PC and another Democrat who has decided to take ownership in the direction of our state! Woohoo!

D26 PC Kristin Gwinn: Child Safety bill important start, but NOT real reform

While these changes are needed, let's be clear, they do not "fix CPS". In recent months, we've watched public administrators and elected officials look to place blame for the 6,500 uninvestigated ("NI") cases.
