Voter Registration Numbers Announced
PHOENIX – The latest voter registration figures are out and according to Secretary of State Ken Bennett, Arizona has 3,165,558 registered voters, a decrease of 46,153 since the last report in July. The decrease is due largely in part because Arizona's counties routinely perform list maintenance to purge inactive voters from the rolls.
Of the state's 3.1 million voters, 1,124,173 are Republicans, 974,892 are Democrats and 1,037,450 have either registered with independent parties or not designated a party preference. Decreases of 14,629, 24,340 and 6,199 respectively.
Libertarians make up a little less than one percent of the state’s total registration with 23,913, while 5,061 voters are currently registered as members of the Green Party. Additionally, the Americans Elect Party has enrolled 69 voters since joining the state's other recognized political parties earlier this year.
"It's important to remember that only those who have registered with a political party will be able to participate in their respective Presidential primary," Bennett continued. "With the President unlikely to face a primary opponent, many believe that the Republican Party will be the only Party participating in the Presidential Preference Election next year. If that's the case, only registered Republicans will be able to vote in that election."
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 or by calling 1-877-THE-VOTE.
