About the Event

What is this about?

We’ll be talking about what election reforms can bridge political division, increase the security of our elections, and improve the quality of representative leadership.

There are many proposals for improving our elections, such as open primaries, campaign finance reform, redistricting reform, ranked choice voting, and reforming or abolishing the electoral college.

Several advocacy groups are attempting to get specific elections changes on the ballot in Arizona in 2024.

Why come to this event?

Come hear from top policy minds, learn about the issue of election reform in Arizona and the rest of the United States from a variety of different perspectives, and meet other people who care about this issue.
