Figures released by the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office show that the number of Arizona voters who are not affiliated with any political party has exceeded one million for the first time. It is also the first time that the number of independent voters is more than those registered in one of the two major political parties.
As of January 1 there were more than 1,010,000 voters registered as “other” in Arizona. They make up 31.66% of Arizona’s registered voters. That is slightly more than the number of registered Democrats, which is around 1,008,600.
There are now more than 1,142,000 Republicans. But the percentage of Republicans has dropped from 37.1 to 35.8%.
