The Arizona Corporate Challenge. Corporate Challenge Sign-up Sign up here

The Problem: We anticipate the turnout for this fall's General Election to be as high as 65%. Given there are 3.25 million registered voters in Arizona, that means over 2 million people will cast a ballot, many of them at a polling location. Arizona needs over 10,000 poll workers to properly staff the polling locations.

THE SOLUTION: The Secretary of State's office is challenging corporations to encourage and accommodate their employees in becoming volunteers.

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

  • Accommodate your employees taking the day off to become a poll worker by letting them work the polls without taking a vacation day
  • Encourage your employees to become a poll worker by promoting it on your website, in team meetings, and inserts in payroll checks
  • Becoming a financial sponsor for the SoS Poll Worker Campaign.

COMPANIES WHO HAVE TAKEN THE CHALLENGE IN PREVIOUS ELECTIONS:

  • Arizona Chamber of Commerce
  • APS
  • Northern Arizona University
  • Intel
  • Tucson Chamber of Commerce
  • Maricopa County Community Colleges District
  • East Valley Partnership
  • Motorcycle Mechanics Institute
