A representative democracy means the people choose their elected officials, not the other way around.

Concerns about voter suppression efforts are mounting in Arizona. Many say the redistricting process is being targeted to diminish Native voting power.

“I’m very concerned. I'm very angry. I'm disgusted by what's happening,” Pima County Recorder Gabriella Casarez-Kelly said. She is the first Indigenous person to hold an elective office in southern Arizona’s Pima County and previously volunteered with a grassroots organization to increase Native voter participation.
