What Are Challenges Of Getting People To Vote In Off-Year Election?
There’s a deadline next week to register to vote in a Phoenix election next month.
Yes, there’s another election on March 14 — it’s a run-off for the District 3 seat on the City Council between Chris DeRose and Debra Stark.
This of course follows the 2016 presidential election, which featured a host of other races, not to mention the August primary, the May vote on education funding in Proposition 123, and the March Presidential Preference Election.
Off-year elections typically struggle to draw voters — so will this year’s be any different?
