> When are the polls open?

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day. Don't forget your ID!

 

> Can I vote early?

Absolutely. If you are on the Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL), you will

automatically receive a ballot in your mailbox beginning 27 days before the election.

Voters not on PEVL may make a one-time early ballot request

 

> WHEN ARE IN-PERSON EARLY VOTING LOCATIONS AVAILABLE?

In-person early voting locations are available beginning 27 days before the election

through the Friday before Election Day. Hours of operation may vary by location.

Locations typically include the County Recorder's Office, as well as designated locations across the voter's county.

Voters can find a list of onsite early voting locations by visiting our election detail page.

 

> When does my early ballot need to be received in order to count?

Your early ballot must be received, not postmarked, by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day.

Please make sure that you return your early ballot by mail well in advance of the deadline

date to ensure that your vote is counted. We recommend you mail your ballot at least 6 days before Election Day. 

 

> Can someone else pick up or drop off my early ballot?

No. An early ballot can only be mailed directly to the voter who has made a request to vote an early ballot.

This is to ensure that no other person has the opportunity to steal, alter or invalidate an early ballot.

Early ballots must be returned by the voter, a family member, household member or

> How can I check the status of my early ballot to see if it was received?

> Can I vote in-person at a Ballot Center on Election Day if I already requested or received an early ballot?

You can go to any Ballot Center location across the County to vote in-person on Election Day. 

You will be given a new ballot and your mailed ballot will be voided.

Also note that Ballot Centers are open 27 days leading up to an Election and on Election Day

so you can go vote in-person starting at the 27th day up to and including Election Day.

 

>CAN I GO TO ANY POLLING PLACE?

No. Voters must go to their assigned polling place. Polling places are only equipped

to provide official ballots to those registered voters that are in the specific precinct for that polling place location.

[*] Arizona Poll Workers Needed

#############################################

https://azsos.gov/pollworker

Sign up to be a poll worker and help run our polling places on Election Day.

Poll workers are essential to our democracy. They play a crucial role in ensuring our elections run smoothly.

Poll workers set up voting locations, guide voters through the voting process, and help guard the integrity of our elections.

Most poll workers are in their 60s and 70s. They have tirelessly performed these duties year after year,

election after election. But their age and health conditions put them at higher risk of serious illness from

COVID-19. We can help protect them and honor their service by passing the torch to Arizonans who

are at lower risk.

Now, more than ever, we need the next generation of Arizonans to step up for our democracy by

serving as poll workers.

 

> https://recorder.maricopa.gov/elections/pollworkerrecruitment.aspx

The Elections Department is always seeking new community members to support Elections Services! From Poll Workers who staff our voting locations to Central Board Workers and other temporary workers filling elections boards and operations support roles, there’s something for everyone who wants to get involved. Ready to serve with us?

[*] JAZZ - The Nash Jazz Club - Live Show Streams

#############################################

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: LET THE LIVE SHOW STREAMS BEGIN!

Dear Nash Community,

In the spirit of John Coltrane, NOW IS THE TIME to move into the next phase of our COVID-19 odyssey: LIVE STREAM SHOWS from The Nash!

https://www.facebook.com/TheNashJazzClub/

While we had hoped to reopen by now with an appropriately distanced, limited capacity audience and concurrent live streaming of shows,

that is not yet an option.  So we will be presenting Live Stream shows for your enjoyment starting this Friday at 6:30pm with Odd Man Out,

and on Sunday at 3pm with the 3rd Annual Father's Day Matinee where I will proudly play piano with my sons Adrian on bass and Julian on drums,

 plus Tony Vacca on sax and father Dennis Rowland on vocals. I hope that you will tune into these live streams or view them at your convenience afterwards on The Nash facebook page.

The internet has an abundance of jazz content these days - from archived shows, to solo and composited performances from quarantine,

to new shows without audiences being streamed from venue like Smalls, The Vanguard and The Nash. We all face the same dilemma: how to

 cover the cost of musicians (who we all want to fund during this work drought) and our relentless venue overheads?

While many venues are attempting to monetize live stream shows through access via ticket purchase per show or subscription packages,

The Nash wants to offer free access to everyone in our community with the sincere hope that viewers will chose to donate in an amount that correlates

to what you would have paid to attend the show in person - maybe it's the equivalent of a single ticket; or one ticket per household; or any amount that

 works for you.  In addition, we are offering sponsorships in amounts of $250 for non-exclusive sponsorships and $500 for exclusive sponsorships for

 most shows. Or we'd be grateful to take a larger donation in general support of our streaming and operations. Your generosity, in whatever amount you can afford,

 will help to sustain The Nash in these especially difficult times for the arts that bind us.

 

Stay tuned for a schedule of live stream shows in the near future.

#############################################

Update + How We Plan To Give Back To The Community

$100 Grocery Gift Card Giveaways

First and foremost, I am happy and blessed to be able to officially fill my father’s shoes and bring Urban AZ to new heights.

 I have plenty of experience in the concert industry as I have produced my own concerts in the past, such as Daniel Caesar and Migos,

 just to name a few. Below are some of the new things we are implementing as well as updates!

 

Urban AZ Foundation

While all of us personally do our part in donating and helping out the community whenever we can, we want to take things a step farther and

 create the Urban AZ Foundation. The Urban AZ foundation will focus on supporting social justice causes as well as awarding college scholarships,

providing supplies to families and children that are in need, and educate the youth with life knowledge and skills that aren’t typically taught in K-12 schools.

50% of all of our future concert and advertisement revenue will be donated to the UAZ foundation (unless stated that more will be donated). More information can be found HERE.

[*]  Arizona's African American legacy in organ and tissue donation

#############################################

In all, 181 Black organ donors have given the gift of life since 1988 in Arizona alone.

(Source: UNOS.org) They saved lives through organ and tissue donation.

On the other side of the coin, Dr. Dana Jamison received a living kidney

donation from her husband, Alex Jamison.                                                                            

He saved her life so she could continue to heal others as an orthopedic surgeon.

This #BlackHistoryMonth, we celebrate their legacy, as well as yours!

Please consider sharing their contribution to the world as part of your Black History Month coverage.

And feel free to call me with anything questions.

Thank you so much for your consideration!
