Tell Hillary Clinton: Condemn voter suppression in Arizona

Petition Text

Hillary Clinton should make a public statement condemning voter suppression in the March 22nd Arizona presidential preference election.

Why is this important?

America saw voter suppression in action on March 22nd, watching would-be voters in Maricopa County, Arizona, stand in line for hours to vote for a presidential nominee.

Why were the lines so long? The county’s usual number of polling places had been reduced by 70%, from 200 to only 60. At 1,250,000 voters in the county, that meant 21,000 people per polling place.

Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell defended the reduced number of polling places as a cost-cutting measure. But countless numbers of voters stood in line for hours; more countless numbers had to leave the lines before voting because they couldn’t wait the extra hours it would take to make it to the polling booths. Some voters were still in line at 11:30 p.m.

Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders, quoted by CNN, said this: "In the United States of America, democracy is the foundation of our way of life. And what happened in Arizona is a disgrace.”

It’s time for Hillary Clinton to go on record: stand up for democracy by condemning voter suppression in Arizona.

Reasons for signing

  • “Voter Suppression” is a crime against the very fabric of our democracy!! Legal action should be taken against those specific public officials who engineered the long lines, the precinct closures, curtailment of early voting and the establishment of completely unnecessary “Voter ID’s Laws”!! At the very least, they should ALL be made to pay the ultimate political price for their actions to sabotage our Constitutional Rights: It’s Time to Throw Every Single RepubliThug Out of Office!!
  • make her face up to the vote rigging!
  • I am sick of the RETHUGLICAN GOVERNORS WHO SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES. THEY THINK THAT'S THE ONLY WAY THEY'LL BE ABLE TO WIN THE ELECTION , IT HASN'T WORKED BEFORE AND WON'T WORK THIS TIME.
