Arizona gained about 50K registered voters during fourth quarter of 2019
PHOENIX — Arizona inched closer to the 4 million mark for active registered voters ahead of a busy 2020 election season.
The state added about 50,000 registered voters between October and December, according to a quarterly report released Wednesday by Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.
Arizona had a total of 3.92 million active registered voters as of Jan. 2.
“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,” Hobbs said in a press release.
Statewide party breakdown was unchanged from the office’s last quarterly report, which was released in October.
Republicans still held the highest total of active registered voters in the state and its most populated county.
The GOP made up about 35% of voters throughout the state, compared to 33% for Independents and 31% for Democrats.
Maricopa County followed a similar pattern, with 35% of voters registered Republican, 34% Independent and 30% Democrat.
Democrats again had the most growth in the county, adding about 20,000 new voters.
Independents added about 15,000 voters while Republicans added about 10,000 voters.
