President’s Message – June/July 2020

Breanna Connolly, PE, M.ASCE, President ASCE AZ

Breanna Connolly

“Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress and working together is success.” – Henry Ford

It’s hard to know what to say during these stressful times when there are no simple answers. In these times I think it’s important to listen to each other and work together to focus on caring, patience, understanding and possible solutions.

A big “Thank You” to those of you who participated in the ASCE Society election!

Onward to the US Presidential Election. While it may seem far off, now is a great time to start educating yourself and to consider signing up for a mail in ballot. If you are like me, you don’t particularly enjoy long lines and crowded places and you may be surprised by some of the things you find on your ballot. Mail in ballots allow you time to review what or who you are voting for well in advance and conveniently pop your ballot in the mail or at your voting center when you are ready, up to 27 days before the election day.

If you are not already registered to vote, it is super easy to do on Arizona’s ServiceArizona website, the same place you go to get a new driver’s license or vehicle registration renewal. When you register, you can decide if you want early voting ballots sent to you by mail by indicating you would like to be on the Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL). You must register at least 29 days before the election to be eligible to vote. The next opportunity to vote is the Primary Election on August 4, 2020 making the deadline to register to vote July 6, 2020.

If you are already registered to vote you may want to confirm your address is up to date, review your political party preference, permanent early voting status or other information. You can do all of this through the ServiceArizona links:

The General Election will be November 3, 2020. As part of this election you may find your ballot also includes more local, regularly-scheduled Mayor and Council Election options. The deadline to register to vote in the General Election is October 5, 2020.

Another election resource I found useful is the Citizens Clean Elections Commission website.

In other news, I’m excited to announce the Arizona Section is moving forward with planning our Annual State Conference. The Conference is scheduled for October 19, 2020 and will be held at the Desert Willow Conference Center. More information will be sent as it is available. If you are interested in speaking at the conference, please contact Larry Hanson who is heading up our speaker committee.

Take care of yourselves and each other,

Breanna
