At the Maricopa County Community College District, it is part of our mission to promote civic responsibility. In fact, community colleges were created in this county, not only to provide accessible educational opportunities but also to provide “education for a fuller realization of democracy” (Truman Commission Report).  

Registering to vote and voting is a crucial element of a well-functioning democracy and is central to the very mission of our community college system.

There are as many reasons to vote:

  • Making your voice heard on an issue.
  • Improving your community.
  • Ensuring our democracy is more representative.
  • Setting a positive civic example for your peers as well as those who look up to you.
  • Honoring the many men and women who have fought throughout American history to establish and preserve this basic right.

Voting does matter.  Elections have consequences.  Make your voice be heard.
