Good Citizens

We teach our students to be good citizens. Did you know that in 2012, Arizona had one of the lowest voter turnout rates in the nation? Arizona ranked 45th out of the 50 states with only 53.3% of eligible voters voting. Voting is not only a right, but one of the most important duties of American citizens. The United States was founded on the belief that citizens would have a choice in their leaders and policies. In order to ensure that our students vote when they become adults, it is important that parents register to vote and vote on Election Day. Franklin Roosevelt once said, “Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting.”

Important dates:

  • Check online to see if I you are registered to vote at
  • Last day to register to vote in the General Election was October 6.
  • October 9: early voting begins.
  • October 24: last day to request early ballot. (Contact Mohave County Recorder at 888-607-0733.) Must be mailed in and received by election day. May also be dropped off at any polling place in your county on election day.
  • November 4: Election Day. Polls open 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

And Good Online Citizens
