Article 4, Part 2, Section 2 of the Arizona Constitution states: No person shall be a member of the Legislature unless he shall be a citizen of the United States at the time of his election, nor unless he shall be at least twenty-five years of age, and shall have been a resident of Arizona at least three years and of the county from which he is elected at least one year before his election.

Term limits

See also State legislatures with term limits and Impact of term limits on state representative elections in 2012

All of Arizona's 60 state representative seats are up for election on November 6. 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 2012 state house elections, 3 representatives, or 8.3% of the 60-member House, who were first elected in 2004 (0 Democratic state representatives and 3 GOP state representatives) cannot run for re-election.

In addition to the 3 Arizona state representatives who are leaving office because of Arizona's term limits, 2 state senators are also leaving.

Arizona state representatives whose seats were up for election in 2012 but who are unable to run because of the state's term limits are:

Democrats (0):

None

Republicans (3):

Impact of redistricting

See also: Redistricting in Arizona

The Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission approved new maps on December 20, 2011 by a 3-2 vote, the dissents coming from Republicans; the Department of Justice. Sixteen districts were considered safe for Republicans, 10 for Democrats, and four were deemed competitive.[3] A lawsuit was filed in April 2012 charging that Republicans were being packed into districts to maximize Democratic seats.[4]
