RECAP: Democrats Get Out the Vote in Last Few Days of Early Voting 
PHOENIX — Over the last three days, Arizona Democrats held press conferences in both English and Spanish to encourage voters across Arizona to cast their ballots using Arizona’s trusted, easy, and secure election process heading into the last weekend of early voting.

  • [Gallego] added that if they take the majority in Congress, Republicans would see a way to take away protections for “Dreamers,” the young undocumented immigrants who are mostly protected by Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
  • “All of the GOP candidates are convinced that the 2020 election was non-existent and not right,” Quiñonez said. “Arizona for more than 30 years has proven that voting through the mail is secure. So, every person who wants to stand up for and agrees with democracy in America and in Arizona, join in voting for every Democratic candidate.”
