It is that time of the year folks: Election Season. The Mid-Term Elections are quickly approaching, and Torgenson Law wants to remind all eligible voters to let their voices be heard during the upcoming elections.
Past generations gave their lives to secure freedom and democracy for all future generations of U.S. citizens. Among those hard-earned privileges was the right to vote. That right should be exploited at every opportunity. The right to vote gives you the freedom to choose your governmental representatives, and thus grants you the power to impose real change in your state, local, and federal governments. Still, in Arizona’s most recent Mid-Term election, less than 50% of registered Arizona voters exercised their right.
According to the Arizona Secretary of State Website, in the 2014 Mid-Term elections, only 47% of registered voters cast ballots. While the number of registered voters has increased, the percentage of voter turnout has steadily dropped since the 2006 Mid-Term elections.
As of August 1, 2018, there are 3,632,045 registered voters in the state of Arizona. That is 3,632,045 opinions and ideas on how our state, local, and federal governments should be operated. Every single on of them should be heard. However, the only way that is possible is if everyone exercises his or her right to vote.
