Chapter goals

  1. Flip the second US Senate seat. Mark Kelly is the presumptive Democratic nominee for this seat, and the latest polls showed him scoring 49 percent of the vote to 42 percent for the incumbent Sen. Martha McSally.  Flipping this seat would go a long way towards flipping the US Senate

  2. Win the state’s 11 Electoral College votes. Winning in Arizona makes the path to the Presidency a lot easier for the Democratic nominee and will help ensure that Trump will only be a one-term President.

Our Arizona chapter is based in the Phoenix Metropolitan area and is fairly new, but amongst our team, we have many years of political activism experience to help achieve our goals. 

Our plan to ensure success of our goals is to focus on GOTV (Get Out The Vote) by using every tool we have in our reach.  

  • Phone banking – easily done from our home when we have some free time

  • Text banking – similar to phone banking, this also can be done from home or anywhere

  • Block walking – go door to door (based on a list of Democrats) and talk to individual voters or leave information on candidates

  • Meet & Greet / Virtual Meet & Greet – organized events to meet specific candidates (this can be done in person or virtually)

  • Voter Registration By Mail (VRBM) – help voters get registered via mail

  • Encourage voting by mail – Arizona allows voting by mail

Why join?

Arizona is the 48th state to enter the union and final piece of the continental United States.  Other than Bill Clinton’s win in 1996, Arizona has voted Republican in every election since 1952.  However, do not underestimate its status as a key swing state in 2020.  It has trended blue in recent years.  Mitt Romney beat the incumbent President Barack Obama by 9 percentage points in 2012, but Trump only narrowly beat Hillary Clinton by 3.5 percentage points.  Democrats then went on to have their best election season in more than a generation in 2018 with several wins, the most notable being a big win for Democrat Kyrsten Sinema, who won the Senate seat vacated by Sen. Jeff Flake
