According to Ken Bennett, Arizona’s Secretary of State, the total number of registered voters has risen by 2,302 to 3,227,819. While the state’s major political parties experienced a decrease, the number of voters not affiliated with any party, commonly known as independent voters, increased from 1,075,334 to 1,085,237.
Of the state's 3.2 million voters, 1,139,154 are Republicans (-2,546) and 972,626 are Democrats (-6,545). Libertarians make up less than one percent of the state’s total registration with 25,281, while 5,241 voters are currently registered as members of the Green Party. Additionally, the Americans Elect Party has enrolled 280 voters since joining the state's other recognized political parties in 2011.
“I was glad to see that statewide enrollment increased slightly,” said Secretary Bennett. “With important municipal elections like the city council races in Phoenix, it’s important that people participate. The individuals we elect to represent us make the decisions that effect the lives of our family, friends and neighbors. Cast your ballot and make your voice heard!”
