Arizona’s district lines are drawn by a 5-member Independent Redistricting Commission (IRC). In the latest redistricting cycle, the IRC adopted district plans on a 3-2 vote, with the Independent chair siding with the Republican members on official map passage and nearly every vote during the drafting process. Despite public input throughout the process concerning the representation of Native and Latino communities, the new district lines fail to reflect the diverse nature of the state. Recent elections have proven Arizona to be one of the most competitive states in the country–that’s why it’s a 2022 NDRC Democracy Target. We are supporting candidates for Governor and Secretary of State both of whom are committed to free and fair elections, and seek to build power in both chambers of the Legislature to fight back against Republicans’ anti-democratic efforts.
For the 2022 elections in Arizona, we are targeting the following: Governor, Secretary of State, State Senate, and State House

How Our Fight Continues
Thanks to the grassroots movement for fair maps, we have maps in place that are far more fair than they would have been if Republicans had been allowed to gerrymander unchecked this past redistricting cycle. But if the last few years have shown us anything, it’s that our fight to protect free and fair elections is far from over. Redistricting has always been part of the larger fight to protect our democracy. The stakes are far too high to stand by the sidelines.
