On January 18, the Arizona Secretary of State released a new voter registration tally. There is little change since November 2012, but the percentage of voters registered in the state’s three recognized minor parties increased, and the percentage of independent voters also increased. Here is a link to the data on the Secretary of State’s web page.
The November 2012 percentages were: Republican 35.88%, Democratic 30.50%, Libertarian .71%, Green .156%, Americans Elect .0076%, independent 32.76%.
The January 2013 percentages are: Republican 35.63%, Democratic 30.49%, Libertarian .73%, Green .157%, Americans Elect .0080%, independent 33.00%.
It is somewhat surprising that the only two categories to decline are Republican and Democratic, since the state’s paper voter registration forms have a checkbox for each of the two major parties, but if the voter wants to register independent or into one of the minor parties, the voter must write-in that choice. The constitutionality of that voter registration form will be decided any day now; the matter is pending in U.S. District Court in Tucson.
