Arizona State Legislative Districts (2022 vs 2012)
With Maricopa County outset
Arizona Election Information
In the 2020 presidential election, Biden won in Arizona by only 0.3% (10.457 votes) out of 3,333,839 votes cast. Republicans currently still control the Arizona State House 31-29 and State Senate 16-14. In November 2022, Democrats need to flip only two additional seats in both the House and the Senate in this increasingly Democratic, very gerrymandered state to correct the imbalance and get rid of the Republican trifecta. Unfortunately, redistricting has favored the Republicans again so Democrats will need to work twice as hard to get their voters to show up and to fight back.
All 60 districts in the House are up for reelection in November 2022 for two-year terms. In the 2020 election, one seat flipped to the Democrats (Judy Schweibert, old HD20) and one seat flipped to Republicans (old HD4) leaving the House in Republican hands. In the 2018 election, Democrats flipped 4 districts and none in 2020. Democrats must flip 2 seats in 2022.
All 30 seats in the Arizona State Senate are up for election in 2020. In 2020 Democrats flipped one seat (Christine Marsh SD-28) to turn the house 14-16. Democrats need to flip 2 more seats to get control of the Senate.
2022 Election Cycle Focus
Working with the new districts finalized by the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission after the 2020 census, we are in the midst of analyzing to find the most promising for Democratic pickups. Unfortunately, the "independent" redistricting commission was hardly that with several Democratic-leaning districts packed and cracked.

BACKSLIDING ON POLICE REFORM IN ARIZONA
The Republican-controlled Arizona legislature has voted down bills intended to increase police accountability and instead has passed bills further shielding police officers and departments from oversight and accountability. So, while most of the country is moving forward on police reform and addressing racist and excessive use of force, Arizona has been backsliding to even further shield police officers accused of unnecessary violence against the public they are supposed to serve.
