PHOENIX – The number of active registered voters approaches the four million mark as of January 2, 2020, after more than 50,000 people registered to vote between October and December 2019.
A total of 3.92 million people are active registered voters in Arizona, up from 3.87 million reported during the last quarterly report in October.
“We have several upcoming elections this year, so now is the perfect time for Arizonans who are eligible to vote to either register or update their voter registration,” Secretary Katie Hobbs said.
This year, only the Democratic Party is participating in the March 17 Presidential Preference Election. Therefore, under Arizona law, only voters registered with the Democratic Party by February 18, 2020 will be eligible to participate in that election.
The latest voter registration report also shows the number of inactive registered voters slightly increased, by more than four thousand voters. An inactive voter is still eligible to participate in elections, but is labeled inactive if two election mailings sent to the registration address are returned undeliverable, and the voter does not submit a new registration form or otherwise update his or her address. An inactive voter is returned to active status if they update their registration or vote in any election in the next two general election cycles. As of December 1, 2019, more than 420,000 registered voters are inactive in Arizona.
Additionally, signature requirements for candidate nomination are calculated based on the latest voter registration numbers, which increased for all political parties in 2020.
