Building on her tradition of expanding digital technologies within the Department of State, Secretary Michele Reagan has developed a new webpage (http://go.azsos.gov/cghy) that consolidates more than 200 candidates running in the August Primary onto one convenient site.

The website includes candidate bios, contact information, financial disclosure statements and links to official nomination paperwork. To increase access and reduce costs, Secretary Reagan also built in the ability to request digital copies of candidate petitions within 24 hours free of charge. 

“We created this site to provide voters an easy way to connect with the candidates they’ll see on the ballot in August,” said Secretary Reagan.  “I’m especially pleased with the new accelerated system of processing candidates and the digitization of their filings.  With the elimination of printing costs associated with petitions and other paperwork, people should be better able to inform themselves without bureaucratic red tape, costs and senseless hurdles.  We live in a digital age, it is time government acted like it.”

The improvement comes on heels of numerous other technological enhancements made by Secretary Reagan as she continues to improve accessibility by transitioning the Department of State from paper to pixels. 

The site can be easily accessed by visiting www.Arizona.Vote.  Early voting begins for the primary on August 3, 2016.
