The current local body elections are up and running, but the low voter turnout is a significant issue. Many people also haven't received their voting papers in the lead up to the election.  Grant Duncan, political commentator, is here to offer some solutions to people who might not have gotten their papers, as well as explain why the voter turnout is the way it is. "If you haven't got your paper, it could be at your old address if you've shifted. Or if it's really just gone, lost, you could go down to the council office. I know people are saying yeah right, but you could go to the council office and lodge a special vote." LISTEN ABOVESee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Polling data shows ANC a sniff above 50% with 56% voter turnout - Dr Frans Cronje explains

Independent analyst Dr Frans Cronje's think tank, the Social Research Foundation (SRF) has issued a report showing the ANC would likely win an absolute maximum of 52% of the vote in an election modelled on voter turnout of 56%. The SRF report has garnered significant attention primarily because polling company Ipsos puts the ANC at only 42%, according to its latest polling data. The big difference between these two is the SRF report dealt only with registered voters while Ipsos didn't. South Africa's voter turnout is historically poor. In the 2019 national election, about 66% of the electorate turned out, dropping from 73.4% in 2014. For the 2021 local government elections that figure is even bleaker, at 46% down from 57% in 2014. Among registered voters, Cronje says they're polling the ANC at 46.9%, "and then when we start creating election scenarios, factoring in voter turnout levels, the highest we can get the ANC to is 52%." He says the data regarding the slumping fortunes of the ANC is unambiguous. The SRF report highlights that if only urban South Africans voted, the ANC would muster only 33%. Conversely, if only rural SA headed to the polls, the ANC would win a two-thirds majority. ANC voters are ageing and rural in an urbanising economy. Cronje is adamant that the future survival of the ANC come 2024 is less dependent on anything it does or says, but "is a question of whether the people who wish to beat it are able to pull together sufficiently to shore up confidence in coalition options". If the ANC manages to scrape by in two years' time, it will be a reflection of a disjointed and ineffective opposition in South Africa which simply couldn't get their act together.

Nearly a decade ago, the Supreme Court effectively removed the "preclearance" process in its Shelby County v. Holder decision. That process had been implemented for decades as part of the Voting Rights Act and required places with a history of racial discrimination to get approval from the Justice Department before changing their voting procedures. When the Shelby decision came down, voting rights advocates and mobilization groups panicked. There were widespread fears that this decision would dramatically reduce voter participation in communities of color. Did they? The University of Rochester's Mayya Komisarchik and Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Ariel White sought to answer that question in their recent paper, "Throwing Away the Umbrella: Minority Voting after the Supreme Court's Shelby Decision." In this episode, we speak to Komisarchik about the impacts of the Shelby decision and whether our fears about countermobilization and voter suppression tactics have held true.

Democratic voters, Independents  and disenchanted Republicans -- in addition to the motivation to eliminate extremists from  every elective office -- will have three voter initiatives on the 2022 ballot to secure "good governance" in our state.Provided we all pitch in to get signatures on petitions to place them on the ballot, the Stop Dark Money, Healthcare Rising and Arizonans for Fair Elections initiatives could make the difference in significant voter turnout. Collectively: they will stop anonymous political advertising, eliminate predatory debt collection practices in healthcare and will secure voting rights for everyone.We recently caught up with initiative spokespersons Terry Goddard, Crystal Carrillo and Rita Meehan at an AZ Democratic LD4 meeting in Phoenix.A big thank you to our sponsor the Maricopa County Democratic Party for their support.
