Revision as of 15:41, 7 September 2010

Elections for the office of Arizona State House will be held in Arizona on November 2, 2010. Elections will be held in all 60 districts in 2010.

The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in these elections was May 26, 2010, and the primary election day is August 24, 2010.

In Arizona, representatives are elected to two-year terms with a limit of four consecutive terms. There are two representatives for each district. The two candidates who receive the highest number of votes in each district are elected.

Thirty-five of the 60 incumbent representatives are running for re-election in 2010. (58.33%)

Term limits

Arizona representatives serve two-year terms with a four-term/eight-year limit that was imposed by Proposition 107 in 1992. Arizona's term limits apply to parts of terms and not just full terms.

In the 2010 state house elections, 13 representatives who were first elected in 2002 (five Democratic state representatives and eight GOP state representatives) cannot run for re-election. They are:

Democrats (5):


Republicans (8):


In addition to the 13 Arizona state representatives who are leaving office because of Arizona's term limits, 10 state senators are also leaving.

Nationally, 253 current state representatives term-out in November, or 20% of the 1,263 total seats up for election in the 13 term-limited states with November 2010 elections.

Arizona is one of 6 Houses where Republicans have more term limited representatives than Democrats.
