State Legislatures Are KEY


State legislatures not only create the laws that affect the everyday lives of their constituents, they also play a critical role in determining the districts for the U.S. House of Representatives and thus the fate of the entire country. As new districts come into play after the 2020 census, it will be critical to maintain and extend our Democratic gains in the face of overwhelming Republican gerrymandering and voter suppression. Local Majority provides research that is practical and accessible to support Democratic campaigns for state legislature. Support our efforts or volunteer with us!


Arizona 2024


We are working to flip the entire legislature to a Democratic majority. Only two seats are needed to flip the Senate and the House. The Republican controlled legislature has for years trampled on voting rights, education, teacher's salaries, worker's rights, criminal justice reforms, LGBTQ+ rights, and much more. It's time to vote for your freedom and rights. Vote Democrat from the US Senate seat all the way down ballot.

AZ-REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS

ABORTION & BIRTH CONTROL BANS

Republicans overwhelmingly support an 1864 near-total abortion ban

On April 9, 2024, the AZ Supreme Court ruled that the 1864 law banning all abortions except to save the life of the patient was enforceable. Twice Democrats were blocked by Republicans when trying to bring a repeal vote of the 1864 law to the floor of the AZ` House. On the 3rd attempt and with the help of only a few Republicans, Democrats voted to repeal the 1864 pre-statehood law in May 2024. The repeal does not go into effect until fall 2024. When the repeal takes effect a Republican 15-week abortion law signed in 2022 will become the law of Arizona. This law includes no exceptions for rape or incest. Republicans continue to unduly restrict access to reproductive healthcare for Arizonians.

Illegal Immigration - No solutions from GOP

This is a problem Republicans do NOT want to solve.  We know this because House Republicans failed to even consider the bipartisan bill crafted in the Senate earlier this year.  That's because felon and former president Trump torpedoed the bill to avoid giving President Biden a political "win."

ARIZONA - GROUND ZERO FOR ELECTION DENIALS

Republicans want to make it harder to vote. The effort to deny election results—that is, to reject democracy—is contained within a segment of the Republican party and this segment is particularly prominent in the Arizona Republican party

      • Worker protection bills to increase the minimum wage and protect workers from underpayment.
      • Equal Rights Amendment to guarantee equal legal rights regardless of sex, becoming the 38th and final state needed for ratification to amend the US Constitution.
      • Education bills to increase funding to schools and teachers and make community college free for low- and middle-income students.
      • Gun protection bills with mandatory background checks, red flag law removing weapons from people deemed a threat, and limits on the quantities of guns buyable each month.
