This year more than ever, your vote will make the difference on critical issues for Arizona’s students.
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’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
