Secretary Reagan, Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell and officials from the Phoenix Mercury are holding a mock election for 4,000+ children during the Phoenix Mercury vs. Washington Mystics game at 12:00 p.m. at US Airways Center.

Both the Secretary and Recorder will make brief comments at half-court before the game tips off.

The Get in the Game partnership w/the Phoenix Mercury & the County Recorder’s Office was announced earlier this summer.  The initiative seeks to improve registration and participation rates of 18-24 year olds through the use of interactive programs to educate school-age children on the electoral process and inspire a sense of civic duty.

Kids will vote using actual ballots on real election equipment.

The media are invited to attend.
