Transparency and community involvement are essential to the democratic process and the conduct of successful elections---Maricopa County is committed to both.
Formed in 2005, the Maricopa County Election 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 that are active in the community and conducting voter outreach, the opportunity to raise concerns, review the 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 each month to discuss that month's topic. For members who are unable to attend, the presentations and summaries are emailed to them. 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.
