Independents pick up 43K registered voters in Arizona

The first voter registration report of 2015 showed that the number of independents in Arizona has increased by 43,085 since this time last year. Numbers compiled from all 15 counties were released on Secretary of State Michele Reagan’s website Friday.

Registered Democrats dropped by 28,945, while registered Republicans dropped by 17,272.

The January report showed a total of 3.24 million registered voters in Arizona, about 11,000 more than were reported in November 2014, but only up 2,382 from last year.

Reagan said in a press release that she is “pleased” with the increase in registered voters, but she hopes to see more.

Non-party affiliated voters—so called independents—make up the largest group of Arizona’s registered voters, about 36 percent, at 1.16 million. Republicans account for 1.11 million voters, followed by more than 933,000 Democrats and 26,000 Libertarians, the release said.

Democrats were still the largest voting block in Pima County with 181,113; independents had 166,075 and Republicans 153,220.
