Candidates Offer Voters Rides to the Polls, Assistance in Returning Early Ballots
Mmmm... the aroma of Election Day is in the air.
Candidates were wiping the political mud-stains from their faces, putting on their Sunday best, and making appearances at local polls in hopes that flashing last-minute smiles will tilt the scales in their favor.
Mary Rose Wilcox, candidate for Arizona's 7th Congressional District, was optimistic this afternoon as her campaign volunteers called would-be voters to remind them to head to their nearest voting booth or make sure they've returned their early ballot.
They were offering to pick up ballots that haven't been returned and give residents rides to the polls.
Interested in assistance? Call Wilcox's campaign headquarters at (602) 443-1876.
Ruben Gallego, running against Wilcox, was offering residents of District 7 help with voting.
"If you have any questions about voting, call us at (602) 621-7502 and we'll help you out," Gallego said in a e-mail blast inviting supporters to his Election Night party at Club Downtown, 702 N. Central Avenue.
Wilcox and her crew will be at, not surprisingly, El Portal -- the Wilcox's south Phoenix restaurant that's been shuttered for the past several months.
Other candidates in the Democratic primary -- at least Randy Camacho, a social studies teacher and author, plans to keep a low profile and spend the evening at home with family and friends.
We're waiting to hear back from the Reverend Jarrett Maupin, a young civil rights firebrand, who is also in the AZ CD7 race.
