Arizona 2020

Arizona State Legislative Districts

With 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.

State House 

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.

State Senate

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.

AZ-Legislative Report

This in-depth analysis of recent legislation reveals a lack of connection between GOP politicians and issues of deep concern to their constituents in districts across the state. The GOP has become the “anti” party (anti-environment, anti-workers’ rights, anti-public education, anti-affordable health care, anti-reproductive rights, anti-immigration, and more).  more ...

AZ-Deplorable Education Funding

Arizona voters have long considered education funding to be the number one issue facing the state. But the reality is that no other state has cut school funding more than Arizona. Between 2008 and 2015, legislators cut per-student funding by 36.6%. Since the mid-1990s, the loss of revenue for education spending has been the direct result of Arizona’s Republican lawmakers choosing to cut personal and corporate income taxes instead of investing in schools. The failure to adequately fund education in the years since the 2008 recession means that per-pupil funding is the second lowest and teacher salaries the third lowest in the country.




Republicans don’t want you to vote—especially if you are young, a person of color, or poor.  They have made it harder to vote in every way they possibly can. The Republican attack on voting rights is not just anti-Democrat; it is anti-democracy. Gutting the citizen initiative process,  raising barriers to voting by mail, severely reducing the number of polling places, limiting acceptable forms of voter IDs, disenfranchising former offenders—these are just some of the ways that Republican policies are undermining the fundamental democratic institution of a citizen’s right to vote.
