Canvass for Dems in Arizona

October 26 - October 27

Join us in a SWINGABLE district in a crucial state!
Canvassing Weekend in Phoenix: October 26-27

Just how purple is Arizona?

  • Winning in Arizona (especially in Maricopa County around Phoenix) can help us flip the White House and the U.S. Senate
  • Democrats are just two seats away from flipping the Arizona State House …
  • … and five seats from flipping the State Senate!

Join activists from the Peninsula (and across the West) as we knock on doors with local Democrats in Legislative District-17 in the Phoenix suburbs. LD-17 is 40% Latinx and considered one of the two most swingable districts in Maricopa County. Maricopa is the fourth most important county in the entire country for ousting Trump in 2020! (The Hill, 9/4/19)

Let’s convince all registered Democrats that their votes are crucial for winning the Presidency and Senate, and defend Jennifer Pawlik, a rising Democratic star in the state house. We’ll also work to flip LD-17’s state senate seat, which the Republican incumbent won by fewer than 2,000 votes, and begin canvassing in Arizona.

People move frequently in this district, so we need to re-register them and also register friendly Independents as Democrats, so they can vote in the Democratic Presidential primary on March 17th. Furthermore, we’ll encourage all Democratic voters to join the “Permanent Early Voter List”. We need lots of volunteers, including you!

First, complete the signup form (before October 3rd deadline). Then we’ll connect you with other volunteers so that you can share rooms and rides. Email us with questions.

See you in Phoenix!
Victoria Maxson and Linda Brummer (Swing Left Peninsula’s Arizona team leaders)
