Tell the Dept. of Justice to Send Monitors to Arizona on Election Day

Send federal monitors to Maricopa County to prevent any fraud and oversee issues on election day.

Why is this important?

In Maricopa County, the Sheriff is in charge of guarding the ballots. The DOJ shouldn't let him do it unwatched.

Historic voter registration deserves historic protection of democracy. More than 150,000 people registered to be new voters and will seek to cast their ballot against Arpaio for the first time.

Groups across the area are doing their part for a successful election and the Department of Justice needs to do the same.

For the first time in years, the Department of Justice announced that it won't send federal monitors to the County where Trump ally and criminally-charged Sheriff Arpaio is running for re-election.

The Department's decision to be absent is a dangerous one given that the Sheriff is the one in charge of guarding the ballots cast on election day.

The County recorder has already gotten caught sending out wrong polling information in one instance. And local polling became a national embarrassment during the primaries when fewer locations led to hours-long lines.

Maricopa County, Arizona, United States
