One week to go...

...and the last-minute voter contact and 'Get Out The Vote' (GOTV) efforts are fully up to speed.

Now is the time to redouble all of our efforts to bring responsibility, civility, and professionalism to elected offices at all levels.

In addition to volunteer opportunities with the Arizona Democratic Party and the Maricopa County Democratic Party, there are multiple opportunities to help out for people who don't want to fight downtown traffic.

All are looking for help with early ballot chasing this week and GOTV efforts this weekend, Monday and on Election Day next Tuesday.

There are a number of other East Valley and Maricopa County campaigns that need help too - contact your local coordinated campaign office for more info.

And just as a reminder - anybody with mail-in ballots should plan to have them in the mail by Wednesday to ensure that they reach the Maricopa County Recorder's office by Election Day. If you are unable to mail it in by then, voters can still vote early at the various early voting locations throughout the valley. The deadline for early in-person voting is Friday at the close of business at the various polling locations (see below).

Hope to see you at one of the phone banks or GOTV events!

If the lines today are any indication of how it is going to be on next Tuesday, people need to hustle down tomorrow to avoid a 7-8hour wait.

My wait was about an hour and some people there had been there for several by the time they voted.
