One Week To Go For AZ Voters

Monday, October 6th is the deadline for Arizonans to register to vote and be eligible to cast a ballot for the general election in November. As I've written before, groups like Mi Familia Vota and Voto Latino are working hard to get latinos engaged and empowered.

I'm sure the vast majority of people who stumble upon this website are already registered, but if not, please do so today. Arizonans, you can register online at:

Casting a ballot on election day, especially in 2008, is more than just picking a President. Voters will be evaluating the jobs of every single member in the House of Representatives, in some states Senators (not AZ this year, unfortunately), and many powerbrokers on the state level.

It's easy to dismiss the political world as something that "doesn't affect me" or politicians as a bunch of "clueless elites who don't listen anyways". Words to that effect can certainly be found in the archives of this blog; but the reality is that we can make a different in the direction of this country if a groundswell of common purpose rises up from the streets among the employers of politicians - We, The People. Raza.

There are just a few days left in the Grand Canyon State to be a part of what will hopefully be the beginning of a new, and saner, era of politics.
  • If you haven't registered to vote: take five minutes and go to right now
  • If you have registered to vote: email, text, call, hire a blimp with a blinking billboard to communicate with everyone you know that they should stop what they're doing and take five minutes to visit
