While we contemplate the many decisions we must make during this fall’s elections, let’s not forget the outcomes of many races can impact support for the the arts in Arizona and across the country.

Knowing where the candidates stand on arts and culture and what questions you should ask them is key. The go-to resource for that information is Vote SmART, our one-stop voter information website. And if you’d like to know where the major candidates or President stand on arts and arts education the Americans for the Arts Action Fund is tracking interviews and statements from the candidates at Arts Vote 2016.

The site also offers candidate contact information and timely and important news stories.  You can also sign up for Voter Voice, Arizona Citizens’ voter advocacy network that provides you timely information about arts-related legislation and lets you know when you need to contact your elected officials to take action.
