Twenty thousand new Arizona voters
Registration grows despite decrease within Democratic Party
PHOENIX - The latest voter registration figures have been released and according to Secretary of State Ken Bennett, Arizona has 3,244,793 registered voters, an increase of 20,066 since the last report in October.
Of the state's 3.2 million voters, 1,131,263 are Republicans and 962,828 are Democrats. The number of voters registered without a party preference or with independent parties is 1,123,998, an increase of 24,952. This number includes voters previously registered with the Green Party, which did not attain the required number of electors to preserve continued recognition on the ballot in 2013.
Libertarians make up a little less than one percent of the state’s total registration with 26,387, and the Americans Elect Party has enrolled 317 voters since joining the state's other recognized political parties in 2011.
“Important choices lie ahead,” said Secretary Bennett. “Whether citizens are registering for the first time or have just re-registered, they have taken the first step toward exercising one of our most fundamental rights. The right to vote.”
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/Election/VoterReg or by calling 1-877-THE-VOTE.
