The Maricopa County Recorders office is recruiting:

Looking for citizens to help us: a) register voters at events we schedule / your own events, or b) to work election(s).

They can work when it is convenient for them. If they go through our Citizens Academy orientation and 2 hr voter registration class they will be certified deputy registrars.

We truly need more Republicans to register voters and work the election in November.

Citizen Boards are a sit down position in our election center if anyone has concerns with standing long periods. Plus, there will be phone call positions as we move forward. This does not need to be walking up to people’s houses. They will have a choice as where and what to work.
