AZ’s voter registration dips slightly

The number of voters in Arizona has declined slightly since the beginning of the year, but state officials expect an uptick in that figure as the summer and fall elections approach.

The state has about 5,300 fewer voters since the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office last released a voter registration report. The state currently has 3.1 million voters.

Officials say the decrease could be attributed in part to people leaving Arizona because of the state’s ailing economy.

The decrease didn’t change the edge that Republican voters have over those from other parties.

Republicans account for 36 percent of the state’s voters, followed by Democrats at nearly 33 percent, independents at 32 percent and libertarians at eight-tenths of a percent.
