Election Protection Arizona is a nonpartisan coalition — not affiliated with any political party — that works to ensure eligible voters are able to participate in our democracy without barriers like burdensome policies, misinformation, or intimidation. Our mission is to make sure all votes are counted, regardless of who they’re for.
Election Protection AZ is anchored by the Arizona Democracy Resource Center, and our coalition partners are frontline organizations that work with communities most targeted by voter suppression.

We recruit, train, and rely on volunteers from the community to monitor and report any potential voter intimidation or barriers to the ballot. We have seen equipment malfunctions at voting sites, overzealous campaigners, and widespread misinformation. We prepare our volunteers to monitor their own social media feeds, discussion in their neighborhoods, and specific voting sites that have a history of issues, regardless of political party turnout or presence of partisan election protection programs.
