Primary: Arizona is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. The primary is considered semi-closed. Unaffiliated voters may choose which party's primary they will vote in, but voters registered with a party can only vote in that party's primary.[1][2][3]

Voter registration: Voters must register to vote in the primary by July 28, 2014. For the general election, the voter registration deadline is October 6, 2014.[4]

Battleground races


Arizona is home to three battleground districts in 2014: Arizona's 1st Congressional District, Arizona's 2nd Congressional District and Arizona's 9th Congressional District. All three of these districts are currently held by Democratic incumbents.

District 1

See also: Arizona's 1st Congressional District elections, 2014

Arizona's 1st Congressional District is a battleground in 2014. Incumbent Ann Kirkpatrick (D) is seeking re-election in a district with a Republican lean according to both Cook's PVI and Fairvote.[2][5] Additionally, Kirkpatrick won the district in 2012 by under 4 percent, and the Republican presidential candidate won the district in both 2012 and 2008.

Kirkpatrick will face the winner of the Republican primary between Adam Kwasman, Gary Kiehne, and Andy Tobin in the general election.

District 2

See also: Arizona's 2nd Congressional District elections, 2014

Arizona's 2nd Congressional District is a battleground in 2014. Incumbent Ron Barber (D) is seeking re-election in a district with nearly even amounts of Republican and Democratic voters according to Cook's PVI and Fairvote.[2][5] Barber is a freshman incumbent who won election to the district by less than 1 percent in 2012. Additionally, the Republican presidential candidate won the district in both 2012 and 2008.

Barber will very likely face Martha McSally (R) in November in a rematch of the 2012 general election. McSally holds a tremendous fundraising edge over the other Republican candidates for the seat, Shelley Kais and Chuck Wooten, as of the April 2014 Quarterly reports.

District 9

See also: Arizona's 9th Congressional District elections, 2014

Arizona's 9th Congressional District is a battleground in 2014. Incumbent Kyrsten Sinema (D) is seeking re-election in a district with relatively even numbers of registered Democrats and Republicans according to Cook's PVI and Fairvote.[2][5] Sinema is a freshman incumbent who won election in 2012 by just over 4 percent of the vote. The district was won by President Barack Obama by roughly 4 percent in both 2012 and 2008.

Sinema will face the winner of the Republican primary between Wendy Rogers and Andrew Walter in the November general election.
