State & County
There are 15 counties in the U.S. state of Arizona. Four counties (Mohave, Pima, Yavapai, and Yuma) were created in 1864 following the organization of the Arizona Territory in 1862.
The Arizona State Legislature consists of 30 districts, each of which elects one senator and two representatives. Each legislator, both Representatives and Senators, serve two-year terms.
Our local public servants have a major impact on our day to day lives. They leverage our property tax dollars to make big budgetary decisions that influence our communities, from education reforms to welfare and more. They impact our streets, roads, parks, schools, and hiring of our teachers as well as first responders.
