Arizona State Legislative DistrictsWith Maricopa County outset
Arizona Election Information
Democrat Kyrsten Sinema won the U.S. Senate with a 2.4% margin statewide in 2018. In the 2016 presidential election, Clinton lost in Arizona by only 3.57% (91,234 votes) out of 2,604,657 votes cast. Republicans currently still control the Arizona State House 31-29 despite losing 5 seats in 2018 and State Senate 17-13. In November 2020, Democrats need to flip only a few more seats in this increasingly Democratic state to correct the imbalance and get rid of the Republican trifecta.
All 60 districts in the House are up for reelection in November 2020 for two-year terms. In the 2018 election, Democrats flipped 4 districts. Democrats must flip 2 seats in 2020.
All 30 seats in the Arizona State Senate are up for election in 2020. In the 2018 elections, the Republicans maintained their majority at 17-13. Democrats need to flip 3 seats.
2020 Election Cycle Focus
We are primarily concentrating on five legislative districts: LD-6, 17, 20, 21, and 28, although our work is also provided to all Democratic candidates and incumbents. In Arizona, the district number is identical for the State House and State Senate where each district has two House seats and one Senate seat. All 60 House and 30 Senate seats are up for reelection in November 2020 for a two-year term. LD-6 is primarily a rural district spanning four counties, while LD-17, 20, 21 and 28 are parts of urban-suburban Maricopa County. These five districts are being targeted because the Democratic incumbent or challenger is in a highly competitive race and/or District demographics indicate they are emerging “purple” localities with a mix of traditional and progressive voters.
