The general election is quickly approaching and Arizona voters need to be aware of some important election dates.
Arizona voters will vote in the general election on Nov. 8.
This election cycle, Arizona voters will elect a new governor, secretary of state and attorney general. In addition, voters will decide if the treasurer, one U.S. senator and the superintendent of public instruction will remain in office or replaced. Voters will also determine several seats open in the Arizona’s U.S. House of Representatives and Senate races.
During this year’s general election, voters will also decide on 10 propositions.
