The people who live outside the city boundaries (in Maricopa County) will vote at the community center. For voters to find their assigned polling location or replacement ballot location for all mail areas they need to use our locator: maricopa.gov/pollingplace/
· Tuesday Afternoon, AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham backpedaled and thanked the majority of county recorders in Arizona who have provided the party with voter lists and information that party volunteers used to encourage voters to participate in the election process. Yesterday Graham referred to “incompetent, corrupt, or misinformed public officials (who) do not do their jobs” as he criticized several counties that he claimed “appeared to not be providing lists of voters who had returned ballots as required by law.”
Today’s AZGOP release reads: “In response to yesterday’s press release, Pinal, Yuma and Gila counties responded to us with ballot returns or plans for when they would provide the returns. Upon further review we also found that Navajo County had provided us with their lists and we offer them our sincerely apology,” said Graham. “We appreciate all of the hard work of our county recorders and look forward to continuing to work with them. However, we’ve still got a serious problem with Santa Cruz County refusing to provide lists of voters are required by law, leaving Arizona’s wondering what’s going on with 22,000 voters in southern Arizona,” Graham added. azgop.org/blog/
· Robert Graham Backs Off From Yesterday’s Allegations that “Five Arizona Counties Refuse to Follow Law Requiring Informing Parties About Voter Turnout: County Officials Obstruct Voter Reporting, Disrupt GOP Turnout Efforts.”
Yesterday, Graham “blasted several elected county recorders in Arizona who have refused to comply with the law regarding providing political parties certain with lists of registered voters. We have some very tight races with razor thin margins between candidates. Many of our candidates are being affected — especially Sylvia Allen, Brenda Barton, Bob Thorpe, and Andy Tobin who all need our help — but it’s hard to help them when incompetent, corrupt, or misinformed public officials do not do their jobs.”
Graham’s 8-20-14 release stated: “State law requires county officials to provide parties with lists of voters who request and return early ballots. These lists are essential for the AZGOP to function as a state party and to help Republican candidates. Knowing who has returned a ballot means the campaigns and the party can stop sending those voters mail, knocking on their doors, and making calls to them, all of which involve significant expenditure of precious campaign resources. Unless the party and our candidates can receive correct information from our own county governments the party cannot efficiently get out the vote.
“We have 12 Victory offices statewide with paid and volunteer staff calling Republicans in every part of the state to remind them to turn in their ballots. We don't want to call those who have already voted, and neither do those voters wish to receive such calls,” added Graham. "The law requires counties to tell us who’s voted so we can prevent this waste of time and resources, but were not getting the information we need from five counties."
· Editor’s Note: Briefs took down the AZGOP’s original 8-20-14 story when reports started surfacing that Graham’s allegations against the county recorders were flawed. The original story can be viewed at http://azgop.org/five-arizona-counties-refuse-to-follow-law-requiring-informing-parties-about-voter-turnout.
· Yesterday, Graham also mounted a campaign “to encourage Republican Precinct Committeemen — “many of whom are making unnecessary calls to those who have already voted because county recorders won't provide timely information “ — to contact the Navajo, Pinal, Yuma, Gila and Santa Cruz County Recorders offices to demand they comply with the law. Graham referenced A.R.S. § 16-168(D): “During the thirty-three days immediately preceding an election and on request from a county or state chairman, the county recorder shall provide at no cost a daily list of persons who have requested an early ballot and shall provide at no cost a weekly listing of persons who have returned their early ballots. The recorder shall provide the daily and weekly information through the Friday preceding the election. On request from a county chairman or state chairman, the county recorder of a county with a population of more than eight hundred thousand persons shall provide at no cost a daily listing of persons who have returned their early ballots. The daily listing shall be provided Mondays through Fridays, beginning with the first Monday following the start of early voting and ending on the Monday before the election.”
· Earlier this week the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors and County Recorder lost a legal challenge brought by a group of voters seeking information about the voting and election process in Santa Cruz County, according to AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham More case information here, Other ballot problems based in Santa Cruz are reported here. azgop.org/blog/
· Don’t Forget To Sign Your Mail In Ballots Envelope. Did you know that over 5,000 ballots in the primary weren't counted because they weren't signed and they arrived after the Primary. It is suggested that you mail in your early ballots by Oct 30 so they are sure to be delivered to the Recorder’s office by Nov 4. Postmarks do not count. If you don’t mail your ballot before Oct 30, take it to any polling place within your county.
· Circulating The Internet: THE DEBT CEILING
* Democrats don't understand THE DEBT CEILING
* Republicans don't understand THE DEBT CEILING
* Liberals don't understand THE DEBT CEILING
* NO ONE understands THE DEBT CEILING
* SO - Allow me to explain:
Let's say you come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood. Your home has sewage all the way up to your ceiling.What do you think you should do -- raise the ceiling or pump out the s---? Your choice is coming in November.
· Phx Mayor Greg Stanton and the Phoenix City Council unanimously today (Tues, Oct. 21) approved a plan to protect Phoenix against future shortages on the Colorado River and help ensure that the city remains a leader in the sustainable management of its water supplies. phoenix.gov/news/mayor/433

· The Navajo County Board of Supervisors unanimously chose Jason Whiting to replace Supervisor Sylvia Allen as the Navajo County Supervisor for District III. Whiting will fulfill the remainder of Mrs. Allen's term which concludes in 2016. Allen was recently appointed to the Arizona Senate.
· Final Push To Get Out The Vote In CD 3. This part of the orchestrated strategy is to simply make phone calls to Republicans in CD 3 who have not yet returned their early ballots. The bottom line is that CD3 candidate Gabby Saucedo Mercer wins if we can get enough Republicans in CD 3 to vote! But that is not all; with a Gabby victory we should expect victories for the respective Republican State Senate and House Candidates in LD 4, LD 13, LD 19 and LD 29 and our efforts will also assist our State-wide candidates too. Voters said that you want to get rid of the leftist incumbent Raul Grijalva, now is your chance to act! We have thousands of calls to make and Gabby needs your help. I promise you that it is really easy; you can secure the vote of 100 Republicans in just a few hours. If 100 contacts if too many, then just ask for 50. For a sample script and a phone list contact Andrew Costanzo, firstname.lastname@example.org or 480 677-0697.
· The Navajo County Board of Supervisors convened a Special Board meeting Fri, Oct 17 to consider an agreement with the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), which would allow the Sheriff's Office to house inmates from the tribal communities in the County's adult detention facility.

· AZGOP: More Than 21 Days Ago Democrat Fred DuVal, a special interest lobbyist and career influence peddler, promised to release his lobbying client list during the Clean Elections debate on September 28. Today, Arizonans are still waiting for DuVal to keep the public promise he made to them. To help voters keep track of how long it takes for DuVal to come clean and keep his promise, the Arizona Republican Party today released “DuVal’s Disclosure Promise Clock” to highlight how long it’s been since he made that promise and remind him that the clock is ticking. See details: azgop.org/blog/
· One Week Ago, Dem Gubernatorial Candidate Fred Duval told Redemption Church in Gilbert that he supports allowing a child as young as 14 years old to have an abortion without her parent’s consent. Several stories and non-local news outlets have reported on his now-apparent extreme views on abortion. Pastors and other leaders have spoken out in support of parental consent and the role of the family during such a critical time. Today, the Arizona Republican Party learned that in a statement on Friday, Fred DuVal is seeking to walk back his comments. “Days after stating his unequivocal support for minors, even as young as 14 years old, having abortions without the knowledge or consent of parents, Fred DuVal is now seeking to mislead Arizonans,” Arizona Republican Party Chairman Robert Graham said. “The truth is DuVal is a liberal lobbyist who holds extreme positions that are opposed by the vast majority of Arizonans and they won’t fooled by slick tactics.” See: DuVal video Full release azgop.org/blog/

WHAT CANDIDATES ARE SAYING:
· CD2 Candidate Martha McSally: Ron Barber has actively avoided talking about his dismal record on jobs and the economy and now we know why: even he thinks Southern Arizona families are worse off under his failed leadership. During an interview segment with KVOA's Sean Mooney that aired last night, when asked if we're better off, Ron Barber answered: "Not for a lot of people I talk to. The people of Southern Arizona, many, too many are still without jobs, still wondering if they're going to keep their job..." interview segment HERE. "I can't think of a better reason to fire Ron Barber than the fact that even he believes his policies have made us worse off than before," said McSally Campaign Spokesman Patrick Ptak. "For families in Southern Arizona, our economy is their number one concern and they know we simply cannot afford two more years of slow growth and high unemployment under Ron Barber. Martha is an independent leader who will actually fight for small businesses and better-paying jobs, not just talk about them, and that's why groups focused on growing our economy are strongly backing her." McSally continues to earn strong support for her fresh approach to creating jobs and growing the economy, recently out-raising incumbent Barber for the 6th reporting period in a row. She has been endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Business, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National and Arizona Restaurant Associations, and the Arizona Republic and won the backing of the National Association of Home Builders, the Associated Builders and Contractors, and the Associated General Contractors. Recently, the Wall Street Journal reported that Tucson has lost more jobs than anywhere in the country since 2009. Earlier this summer, KGUN reported that the Tucson region is one of the "least-recovered" in the nation.
· CD2 Candidate Martha McSally: Rejecting the scare-tactics being used against her, retired Air Force Colonel Martha McSally today released a new ad that features an over-the-top narrator claiming, "McSally dislikes puppies." The ad strikes down the false attacks being used by Ron Barber meant to scare voters while exposing their ridiculous nature. The ad also corrects for the record once and for all: Martha McSally loves puppies. "Ron Barber is showing that when you don't have a record to stand on, you spread lies and fear, but voters see right through his desperate fear-mongering," said McSally Campaign Spokesman Patrick Ptak. "Martha is an independent leader who has shown she'll stand up for what's right, protect seniors' benefits, and fight for better opportunity for students and families." Puppies Transcript:
Barber's Ad Guy: "Martha McSally hates apple pie. McSally will destroy social security!"
Martha: "Hey there, that's totally wrong. My commitment is to protect Social Security and Medicare."
Barber's Ad Guy: "Martha McSally wants to end student loans."
Martha: "Wrong again."
Barber's Ad Guy: "I got it...Martha McSally's War on Women."
Martha: "Are you kidding me? This is why people are fed up with politics. The lies keep growing but the jobs don't. I'm Martha McSally and I approve this message because it's time for a change."
Barber's Ad Guy: "McSally dislikes puppies."
Martha: "Watch it..."
· CD1 Candidate Andy Tobin: There’s just 14 days left, and I’m really, really concerned about what’s happening to Andy Tobin.It’s exactly what happened to me in 2012 – when we lost and Ann Kirkpatrick got reelected. Nancy Pelosi flooded the airwaves with attack ads. We were overwhelmed, and lost by just a few points.Pelosi is doing it to Andy now. The attack ads are non-stop, false and having an impact. I know. I’ve been there. Andy needs our help. contributions could turn the tide. I know Andy can still win and do what I couldn’t do – defeat Ann Kirkpatrick. But this is crunch time. He needs the resources I didn’t have to push back against Pelosi. donate We’ve got to finish the job and get Andy elected. - Jonathan Paton
· CD1 Candidate Andy Tobin: I just hung up the phone from a radio interview with Ann Kirkpatrick. Guess what? She kept on attacking me with ridiculous, canned lines. We already know what attacks she’ll throw our way, since she can’t talk about her liberal voting record. We can handle that. What we can’t handle is the $3,000,000 that Nancy Pelosi is spending to bombard rural Arizona with her own attack ads. Chip in $100, $50, or even $25 right now to help us fight back: http://www.andytobin.com/radio-debate/ I’m nervous that, with just two weeks to go, Nancy Pelosi’s ads are working. We can’t let our conservative message get drowned out by her cash. Donate whatever you can My campaign manager will be giving me a fundraising update tomorrow morning. Hopefully I’ll see your name on the list?
