PHOENIX -- In less than five weeks, Arizona will elect a new governor, attorney general and possibly some new members of congress. But according to Main Street Advocacy, women are less inclined to make it to the polls or cast an early ballot.
So the group is now on a national tour targeting female voters.
Sarah Chamberlain explains, “Women are engaged in the economy, but they're not voting on it. You know, they're concerned about saving money for college educations and retirements, but again, they're not going to the polls.
"The latest thing we're starting to see is ISIS. They're really concerned about security in this country, but again, they're not necessarily going to go to the polls on that, so we're here to deliver that message that if you care about these big issues, you have to vote.”
The Women2Women Conversations Tour takes place on Saturday, Oct. 4 at the Arizona Biltmore. It’s free, but you need to register at www.mainstreetadvocacy.com.
