Arizona has a host of statewide races up for grabs in the 2022 election cycle, including incumbent Treasurer Kimberly Yee and Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman.

Yee, a Republican, initially ran for governor but announced in January she would instead run for the role she was elected to in 2018.

Hoffman, also elected in 2018, is the lone Democrat vying to be superintendent of public instruction and will face one of three Republican challengers.

Secretary of state and attorney general will have new officeholders with Katie Hobbs running for governor and Mark Brnovich running for U.S. Senate.

Five candidates — three Republicans and two Democrats, including incumbent Sandra Kennedy — are seeking to two seats on the five-member Arizona Corporation Commission, and incumbent Mine Inspector Paul Marsh is unopposed.

The primary election will be held Aug. 2, and the general is Nov. 8. (Find the governor candidates here.)
