The latest voter registration figures have been released and according to Secretary of State Ken Bennett, Arizona has 3,244,793 registered voters, an increase of 20,066 since the last report in October.

 

Of the state's 3.2 million voters, 1,131,263 are Republicans and 962,828 are Democrats.  The number of voters registered without a party preference or with independent parties is 1,123,998, an increase of 24,952.  This number includes voters previously registered with the Green Party, which did not attain the required number of electors to preserve continued recognition on the ballot in 2013.  

 

Libertarians make up a little less than one percent of the state’s total registration with 26,387, and the Americans Elect Party has enrolled 317 voters since joining the state's other recognized political parties in 2011.

 

“Important choices lie ahead,” said Secretary Bennett.  “Whether citizens are registering for the first time or have just re-registered, they have taken the first step toward exercising one of our most fundamental rights.  The right to vote.”

 

The latest voter registration figures compiled by county, congressional district and legislative district are available on the Secretary of State’s website, www.azsos.gov/Election/VoterReg or by calling 1-877-THE-VOTE.

    It would be better for Arizona if the independents and social conservatives are in the majority.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
