Vote Blue

Voting rights have been under assault in Arizona for years. During the 2020 election, the Arizona Secretary of State fought against a Republican-held state legislature to protect voters’ rights as the legislature tried to waste taxpayers’ money to overturn election results. Now, with the Secretary of State seat open and the Arizona State House close to flipping blue (after over fifty years of Republican control), there’s a lot at stake for Arizonans: voters’ rights, reproductive rights, education funding, and more.

Electing Progressives into the positions of Secretary of State and the Arizona State House is more important than ever, so we will be going door to door in East Phoenix and Tucson educating and turning out voters ahead of the August 2nd primary to ensure that we get candidates on the ballot for these positions with a proven track record for standing up for the rights of Arizonans and truly representing the needs of their constituents.

Get paid well! Canvass positions start at a $20/hour base pay. Leadership positions earn up to $22/hour. In addition, we offer overtime pay, shift bonuses, paid training, sick pay, and bonuses for friend referrals.

Stay Safe!  We have strict health and safety protocols that include a contactless approach to campaign work. We provide all of the training and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) you will need. All staff must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 OR receive an approved exemption through our HR department and submit weekly testing results.
