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.[3][4][5]

Heading into the election the incumbent is Kyrsten Sinema (D), who was first elected in 2012.

The 9th District is based in Tempe, Arizona, and is one of five primarily urban districts centered around Phoenix, Arizona.[6]
