Voter registration, early voting increase in Arizona

The Arizona Secretary of State’s office says about 2,000 people registered to vote in the state since April.

The agency reported the newest voter registration figures in a written statement Monday.

Secretary of State Ken Bennett’s office says more than 71,000 voters signed up for the state’s permanent early-voting list during that same period of time.

Officials also say about 13,000 people registered as independent voters, while the number of registered Republicans and Democrats fell.

The Secretary of State’s office says the number of registered Democrats has dropped under a million for the first time since August 2008.

Arizona now has about 3.2 million registered voters in total.

Of those, Republicans have the most registered voters, followed by independent voters and then Democrats.

  1. Of course Democrats numbers are falling and independents are rising. It’s moderate Dems registering as Indys so they can vote in Republican primaries in an attempt to stop extremist takeover of horribly gerrymandered state. Vote for moderate Republicans, bring Arizany back from the brink… should be rallying call for 2012.

  2. Did it ever occur to you that the people of Arizona are sick and tired of the people in Washington who can’t seem to do anything but spend our money.
    They certainly don’t seem to care about securing our borders and Arizona is one state that is being over run by illegals. Here in California we have the same problem and now I have marijuan groves surrounding me. We are only three miles from town in a highly populated area. I say support ICE and send them all home. They are illegals (criminals) and have no place here.
