This year more than ever, your vote will make the difference on critical issues for Arizona’s students.
LD9 VOTER GUIDE
The majority of state legislators continue to play games with education funding – balking at the promised restoration of $1 billion for schools, and expanding state funding for private and religious schools to ALL private and religious school students. The current leadership has failed Arizona’s students, but we can change that by voting for candidates who have a proven track record of fighting for school funding that supports ALL Arizona students.
Early voting starts October 12!
ARIZONA STATE LEGISLATURE
VOTE for Eva Burch for State Senate
With an extensive background in healthcare and working with families in Arizona, Eva understands how important access to quality education is to build a better Arizona. Eva Burch is fed up with extremist politicians in our state who refuse to restore funding for schools so we now have the lowest paid teachers and the largest class sizes in the country. We need to work swiftly to strengthen our schools and our economy
VOTE for Lorena Austin for State House
As a 5th generation Arizonan, Lorena knows the importance of family and supporting neighborhoods. She will prioritize supporting our schools and delivering quality education to our kids through legislation. She supports strong schools and a strong economy. Extremists in the state legislature have cut education funding by $1 billion and consistently block and ignore the will of the voters to fund our schools. As a result, we now have the lowest paid teachers and largest class sizes in the nation. Lorena Austin will fight to restore the education funding that the current extremist legislature has blocked.
VOTE for Seth Blattman for State House
Seth will work to empower our youth by fully funding public education. He knows the prosperity of Arizona depends on the success of and opportunity for our students. He will protect public schools and repeal all efforts to expand ESA / vouchers that usually go to wealthy students so they can attend private and religious schools with no taxpayer accountability. Vouchers drain funding from Arizona’s already chronically underfunded schools and give that funding to unaccountable private operators. We should be working to improve the lives of ALL Arizona students.

VOTE for Martín QUEZADA
Arizona’s state legislature voted to send key issues to the voters this year – most of which limit voter access to ballots by restricting the citizens’ initiative process, increasing the hoops voters have to jump through in order to vote, etc. One measure, however, would remove a heinous restriction on some Arizona high school students – known as Dreamers – preventing them from accessing in-state tuition at Arizona’s public colleges and universities. We urge you to vote YES on Prop 308, and NO on those that limit your ability to vote in Arizona.
Prop 128 – limits voter rights – Vote NO
Prop 129 – limits voter rights – Vote NO
Prop 132 – limits voter rights – Vote NO
Prop 308 – in-state college tuition for ALL Arizona HS students – Vote YES
Prop 309 – limits voter rights and restricts mail in voting – Vote NO
