7 Ways to Stay Politically Active in the Time of Coronavirus

  Prepared by LD9 PC/Volunteer Development Committee; April 2020.

#1 Participate in the 2020 Census

Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data. Click here to fill out your census form online: https://2020census.gov/

#2 Tell Governor Ducey you want him to take immediate action to change Arizona into an all-mail election. Click here for the “comment” page:


Select “I am making a comment” under Reason for Contacting the Governor and fill out the form.

Please select “Coronavirus COVID-19” for the subject. Use the following suggested comment or write your own: “We have been warned by public health officials that millions of Americans could die if we do not do our part to avoid person-to-person contact. No one should be forced to decide between voting and staying healthy. We NEED to switch to an all-mail election for the rest of the year to keep our voters, poll workers, and community safe.”

#3 Stay connected in LD9: Attend our monthly meetings via Zoom teleconferencing. Everyone on LD9’s mailing list will receive an email invitation to the Zoom meetings. If you are not currently on our mailing list, fill out this form: https://ld9dems.com/volunteer/
