Polling shows most Arizona voters are confident in state’s election results

PHOENIX – Most Arizona voters are heading into the November general election with confidence in the state’s election system, according to recent polling.

The findings from the Center for the Future of Arizona appear to counter the narrative that concerns about election integrity are widespread in the state.

“We found that 74% of all voters in Arizona consider our elections fair, 70% believe they are secure, 80% are confident in the results of the recent August primary, and 77% think the November results will be accurate,” Sybil Francis, president and CEO of the nonprofit group, told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Arizona’s Morning News on Friday.

“And so that includes majorities of Republicans, Democrats, independents and nonaffiliated voters.”

Francis said the results were somewhat surprising considering how much time politicians spend talking about election fraud and stolen elections.

“We thought it was important to actually go to Arizona voters and ask them what they thought,” she said.

“And so, to some extent, yes, we were surprised because you wouldn’t necessarily expect that based on what we hear every day about where Arizonans stand on these things.”

With early voting for the Nov. 8 general election starting Wednesday, candidates might want to reconsider their messaging, according to the poll findings.

“Less than half of voters believe candidates are addressing the issues that are important to them, which is really important for candidates to know because one of our objectives is to make sure that candidates understand where Arizona voters are,” Francis said.
