Members of Arizona Advocacy Network gathered at the State Capitol Building on Tuesday to "stop the war on voters."

According to organizers, the war on voters is in reference to a series of bills targeted at making voting more difficult and inaccessible, plus increasng campaign finance limits to squeeze out the average Arizonan from the political process.

"I fought hard to be in this country and to have access to the democratic process," said small business owner, Carmen Cornejo. "To have my voice stifled by big campaign contributions is not right."

Participants in Tuesday's event expressed disdain for money influencing politics and their support for strengthening clean elections.
