Find Your District

Following the 2020 U.S. Census, Arizona redrew its political maps in a process called redistricting. This means that the district numbers you might be familiar with as a voter have changed and that the boundaries between districts have moved. To get a better sense of which regions each district corresponds to now, take a look at the official maps from the Independent Redistricting Commission. To find your new congressional district, you can type your address into their search tool. The IRC also publishes a search tool you can use to find your legislative district.
