Arizona’s voter registration base down since June

Arizona’s voter registration numbers are down heading into the state’s primary election next week.

The Secretary of State’s Office announced Monday that the state has slightly more than 3.1 million registered voters. That’s a decrease of more than 45,000 from the last report in June.

Nearly all of the electorate is divided roughly into thirds, with 1.1 million Republicans, approximately 935,000 Democrats and just more than 1 million independents.

Members of the Libertarian, Green and Americans Elect parties account for about 1 percent of the electorate.

The primary election is Aug. 28.

Arizona Voter Registration Numbers Increase

Secretary of State Ken Bennett has announced that Arizona’s number of registered voters has risen to 3,151,615.  An increase of 17,381 since the last report in February.

Of the state’s 3.1 million voters, 1,134,094 are Republicans, 952,907 are Democrats and 1,037,007 have either registered with independent parties or not designated a party preference.

Libertarians make up a little less than one percent of the state’s total registration with 22,530, while 4,929 voters are currently registered as members of the Green Party.  Additionally, the Americans Elect Party has enrolled 148 voters since joining the state’s other recognized political parties last year.

“It’s an encouraging sign when we see an uptick in voter registration,” Secretary Bennett said. “Important choices lie ahead and we urge voters to participate in the process during the next seven months of the election cycle.”

The latest voter registration figures compiled by county, congressional district and legislative district are available on the Secretary of State’s website, www.azsos.gov by calling 1-877-THE-VOTE.
