Howdy, you’ve found the internet home of Arizona’s Legislative District 12 Democratic Party! Our local Democratic Party represents the townships of Gilbert and Queen Creek.
(If you’re not savvy to what a legislative district is or which one you’re in, see the FAQ below.)
The D12 party is made up of passionate citizens who believe in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all, and that the government was instituted by the consent of the governed in order to secure these rights. We believe that Arizona is a great state, that the United States is a great country, and that they can both be even better. Nations, states, parties, and other institutions are owned and guided by those who participate, and we work to make ours great.
What’s a legislative district? A legislative district is an area which elects various municipal and state officials, most notably two Arizona representatives and one Arizona senator.
Wait, I thought I had one representative and two senators!? You do, but those guys represent our larger congressional district at the federal level and work in DC. Our two Arizona reps and one senator represent the legislative district at the state level, and work in Phoenix. Legislative District 12 (LD12) is part of Congressional District 5 (CD5).
So what district do I live in? If you’re a Maricopa County resident, use the county recorder’s District Locator to find out. If you’re not a resident, sorry partner; all I can say is your county’s recorder’s website may have a similar feature.
