In 2021, Gila County Dems are beginning a neighborhood outreach program designed to famiiiarize our PCs with the Democratic voters within their own precincts. This outreach is via postcards, phone calls, and door to door canvassing. PCs are hosting neighborhood events for Democrats to meet other Democrats within their precinct. Each precinct is in need of volunteers to help with this outreach. If you would like to help with this effort, and get to know many more Democrats in your precinct, please volunteer! Email us for more information at: firstname.lastname@example.org
From time to time, Gila County Dems will post a call to action. This may be to call your Congress or your State Legislature about pending legislation. It may be to sign a petition. View our Action Alerts

Request To Speak (RTS)
The Request To Speak program (RTS) is designed to allow the public to register an opinion on bills listed on agendas and to request to speak on a bill in a committee. You will need an account to participate (find out how to obtain one in the "How To" link below). Although the name implies that you want to speak, that is not at all necessary; you may register your opinions from the comfort of your home.
RTS is accessed on the AZ Legislature's website: https://www.azleg.gov/. You will find the link under the "Legislative Information" menu tab. Or, access it directly here: https://apps.azleg.gov/RequestToSpeak/UpcomingAgendas
You may also sign up for an account by filling out this form on the Civic Engagement Beyond Voting (CEBV) website: Sign up for an RTS Account
