AZ Indivisible

Organized by One Arizona in AZ


Indivisible groups throughout Arizona are collaborating to engage our members, supporters and neighbors to make their voices heard in this once a decade activity. Voting is uber-important. Defining your community can make your vote even more powerful. Speak up. Draw your community.

This organization has partnered with Representable to allow people to draw communities of interest and share information about the interests and needs in those communities.

Making this information available encourages mapmakers to take these communities into account during redistricting, in order to avoid gerrymandering and the “packing and cracking” of marginalized groups.

In Arizona, maps are drawn by the Independent Redistricting Commission.

In addition to the federal requirements of one person, one vote and the Voting Rights Act, Arizona’s state constitution requires that state legislative and congressional districts: 

  • be compact
  • be contiguous
  • preserve communities of interest
  • respect geographic features and pre-existing political boundaries
  • favor competitive districts
  • do not protect incumbent candidates
  • do not consider party affiliation and voting history

In the redistricting process, your state requires the consideration of communities of interest (COIs). Though currently undefined under state law, a community of interest is typically a population that shares cultural, historical, or economic interests. Communities do not necessarily share the same political viewpoints or support for certain candidates or political parties. Add your community to contribute your voice to the redistricting process
