Arizona Voters Are #ReformReady!

A poll shows that likely Arizona voters from a variety of political backgrounds want a reform-minded county attorney.

The poll was conducted by Change Research between February 4 and 7, 2020 and included results from 902 registered Arizona voters likely to vote in November 2020.

Among the key findings:

  • 9 in 10 likely Arizona voters said it’s very important for a county attorney to end corruption, prioritize transparency, and make data publicly available.

  • 79% of likely voters agree that racism is a problem in the criminal justice system, and a county attorney should work to eliminate racial disparities.

  • 77% of likely voters want independent investigations when police hurt or kill people to ensure officers are held accountable for misconduct.

  • Nearly 80% of voters agree that county attorneys should reduce incarceration by prioritizing treatment for substance abuse and mental health problems and reduce extremely long prison sentences.

  • Arizona voters do not want their county attorneys to focus on prosecuting non-violent drug crimes.
