NEW ELECTION NIGHT INFO: Arizona Democrats Officially Turnout 6% Higher Than 2016 Primary

PHOENIX – As data continues to come in from Tuesday’s Primary Election, it has become increasingly clear that Arizona Democrats expanded on their turnout margin from 2016 and made notable gains that have set them up for a historic November. Here are key takeaways:

Democrats Won The Early Vote Battle:

Early vote turnout combined with same-day voting now brings the total percentage to 40% vs 34% from 2016.

Total Democrats Voting (Prior to Election Day): 478,000 approximately.

Total Republicans Voting (Prior to Election Day): 475,000 approximately.

AZGOP Underperformed In Early Vote + Face More Challenges:

The Republicans underperformed across the state in early voting. Going into election day, they were running in the negatives across eight counties when compared to their 2016 primary early vote performance.

The results of Tuesday’s primary also suggest Republicans could have trouble heading into the general election, notably Republicans face more risk of losing seats than gaining seats on the legislative map this election season.

Independents Are Leaning Into Democrats:

There were approximately 110,000 Independents that voted early, 54% of them broke for Democrats. And of the approximately 60,000 Independents that voted a Democratic ballot, approximately 30,000 of them had never voted in a state primary before.

Matt Grodsky, spokesman for the Arizona Democratic Party issued the following:

“As more information becomes available, we can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that Arizona Democrats and Independents are enthusiastic, ready for change, and ready to vote this November. The party will continue to build off of our historic momentum so that we flip our state legislature for the first time in 50 years, elect more Democrats to Congress and key offices across the state, and send Vice President Joe Biden to the White House.”
