Transparency and community involvement are essential to the democratic process and the conduction of successful elections---and Maricopa County is committed to both.
Formed in 2005, the Maricopa County Elections Department's Community Network meets monthly to discuss election-related issues and concerns. Comprised of Tribal Leadership, Hispanic Community Leaders, Advocates for Voters with Disabilities, the League of Women Voters, the ACLU, and the Political Parties among others, this group offers organizations active in the community conducting voter outreach the opportunity to raise concerns, review process, and gain first hand knowledge in a productive environment.
At the beginning of each year the monthly topics are posted. The group meets for one hour to discuss the topic. For members unable to attend, the presentations and summaries are emailed. Periodically informative emails are also sent reminding members of voter registration deadlines, early voting dates, lists of precincts where language assistance will be available, re-districting proposals, and other critical election information.
