How Will I Be Voting On November 6th?

By Elisha Dorfsmith

It’s that time of year again where emails and calls start pouring in asking how I plan to vote this election cycle. If you’ve received your early ballot you know that this year our ballot is packed full of candidates, propositions and local bond measures.

Before I get started with my choices, I want to bring your attention to two great local blogs that have gone into detail on many of the propositions and bonds:

Understanding The Legislation

Jeff Oravits Blog

As always, don’t take my word for anything. Do your own research and come to your own conclusions. We may disagree on some of these but my biggest hope is that my readers will cast an educated vote knowing exactly what and who they are voting for.

Here’s how I plan to vote:

Ballot Propositions

Prop 114 YES

Prop 115 NO

Prop 116 YES

Prop 117 NO

Prop 118 YES

Prop 119 NO

Prop 120 YES

Prop 121 NO

Prop 204 NO

FUSD School Bond

Bond Question No. 1 NO

City Of Flagstaff Ballot Questions

Ballot Question 405 NO

Ballot Question 406 NO

Most of you know or can guess who I’m voting for as far as the candidates go. For the record, I have publicly endorsed:

Chester Crandell for State Senate LD6

Bob Thorpe and Brenda Barton for State Representative LD6

Jared Holland for School Board (FUSD)

    Thank you for this. I hope this helps you and your readers:

    Campaign for Liberty Arizona Federal Survey Results

    Flake is worse than I thought, and Paton is much better.

    Arizona State Legislative Candidates

    Do any of candidates have Phone From Home programs going on? I’d like to make some calls for Barton, Thorpe, Crandell, and Paton. If not, can we get it done? I’d ask the Chair, but I don’t get emails from the Coconino County GOP on any issue or event. Funny, you’d think they’d want to contact the PCs to help GOTV. Guess not!

      Wow, thanks so much for those links Nancy. Very useful information.

      I can’t believe they still have not added you to the email list. They want to keep us out of the loop for sure. This is the information Diana sent out a couple days ago:

      – We will begin making phone calls on Tuesday, October 23rd, to PEVLs (early voters) and then to 3X3s – those that have voted in the last three elections. We will be calling people to remind them to vote and ask if they need any assistance or have any questions. We have received a number of calls asking questions about the ballot and the propositions. We will call people through November 5th. You may call from your home or from the headquarters. If you wish to call from home you can pick up the paperwork or ask for it to be emailed to you. We MUST get the paperwork back ASAP to update our call lists!
      PLEASE RSVP with the dates and times that you will be calling to Frank Tehako at 989-392-2647 or fetehako@gmail.com. You can
      also leave a message for Frank at the Republican Headquarters at 266-1955.
