PHOENIX (AP) - A nonprofit Arizona political coalition is launching an effort to register 250,000 people across the state to vote, and to encourage everyone to participate in this year's census.

The non-partisan One Arizona says its launch party will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Carl Hayden High School in Phoenix. The coalition comprises 22 community groups from around the state.

Volunteers will register people to vote and ask them to fill out cards pledging to participate in the 2020 Census.

One Arizona says in 2018 it registered 190,000 people to vote in Arizona, a state with a burgeoning Latino population.
