Tell Helen Purcell: Modernize Our Elections

Maricopa County is having trouble administering an election. Again. This time county officials sent two early ballots to some voters who recently changed their registration.

You won't believe how Maricopa County expects to figure out which ballot is the right one. First, you'll have to find the barcode, and look at the long number underneath. Then, check the last two digits of that number and see if it says 01 or 02. The number ending in 02 is the correct ballot to mail on. Confused yet?

Our elections shouldn't be this complicated. 

Tell Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell to modernize our elections.

1) Make 24-hour secure Drop boxes for Early Ballots available before and on Election Day                                    

According to officials in Denver, it costs around $4,000 to have secure drop boxes that voters can utilize before and on Election Day. This is cheaper than a early voting location, would make voting easier and cut down traffic at polling locations.

2) Increased Curbside Voting on Election Day                                                                                                                  

Polling locations should offer Curbside Voting for voters who want to drop of their early ballot without having to get out of their car and get in line.  

3) More Early Voting Locations                                                                                                                                            

Open additional early voting locations to serve voters.
