The latest voter registration figures are out and according to Secretary of State Ken Bennett, Arizona has 3,145,973 registered voters, a decrease of 5,642 since the last report in March.

Of the state's 3.1 million voters, 1,130,164 are Republicans, 946,974 are Democrats and 1,041,523 have either registered with independent parties or not designated a party preference.

Libertarians make up a little less than one percent of the state’s total registration with 22,272, while 4,872 voters are currently registered as members of the Green Party. Additionally, the Americans Elect Party has enrolled 168 voters since joining the state's other recognized political parties in 2011.

"People can register to vote in the August 28 primary election until July 30," Secretary Bennett said. "Early voting begins in less than a month, so I would urge people to visit www.servicearizona.com as soon as possible to be eligible to participate."

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 or by calling 1-877-THE-VOTE.
