Whether you're voting from your kitchen table or waiting to head to the polls on Election Day, chances are good that you're thinking about that ballot.

As elections grow increasingly divisive — particularly in Arizona — The Show decided to focus this year on issues, not candidates. And today we're focusing on those that we can really feel: climate and the environment.

To walk us through some of what voters are thinking about, The Show heard from two voices.

Paula Randolph is associate director for the Babbitt Center for Land and Water Policy, a nonprofit working on land and water issues throughout the Colorado River Basin. Sharon Collinge is director of the Arizona Institute for Resilient Environments and Societies based at the University of Arizona.
