PHOENIX -- Members of Arizona Advocacy Network gathered at the State Capitol 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. These bills also increase 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," Carmen Cornejo said. "To have my voice stifled by big campaign contributions is not right, said small business owner."

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