As the voice of business, the Greater Phoenix Chamber advocates for pro-business, pro-growth candidates and policies, and this year’s election is no different. In the 2022 General Election, the Chamber’s Political Action Committee proudly endorsed 32 candidates.

Every election is an opportunity for people to make their voices heard on important issues that impact their community. We must exercise our right to elect representatives that reflect community priorities and support or oppose critical issues that will impact lives. This is critical to the businesses that need our elected officials to ensure we don’t enact burdensome regulations and other job-killing policies.

Arizona is a national leader in early and mail-in voting. This is due to Arizona’s Legislative bill passed in 1991 allowing absentee ballots to be requested for any reason, and the Permanent Early Voting List passed in 2007, which allowed individuals to opt-in to early voting for every election. Don’t forget, Arizona voters have until Friday, October 28th at 5:00 p.m. to request a ballot by mail.

While Arizona has a robust and trusted early voting and mail-in ballot process, many people prefer to vote in person on the official election day. As a leader, I’m proud to encourage my staff to vote by offering them paid time away from work on election days to participate in our country’s democratic process. As an Arizonan, I’m proud of our leadership on early and mail-in voting.

If you haven’t voted yet, I urge you to find your polling location and cast your ballot. Polling locations in Maricopa County are open on November 8th from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m.

Please get out and vote!
