A letter from the Leagues of Central Yavapai County and Northern Arizona to the Yavapai County Supervisors exemplifies the League's support for those on the front lines of ensuring fair and impartial elections and voters rights.
The letter appears in the July 4 Opinion Section of Prescott's Daily Courier. The Leagues praise Yavapai County Recorder Leslie Hoffman and Elections Director Lynn Constabile, expressing dismay at their recent resignations. They urge the Board of Supervisors to appoint equally impartial and professional replacements and to issue a statement that disavows attacks on election workers and commits to public meetings that embody civil discourse and respect.
"We support electoral systems . . . that encourage participation, are verifiable and auditable, and enhance representation for all voters. Elections conducted under the guidance of Leslie Hoffman and Lynn Constabile have always adhered to these essential principles." Click on the headline for the full letter
