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.

State House 

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.


State Senate

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.

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 SUPPRESS VOTING AND SILENCE CITIZENS

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.
