Make Your Vote Count

AHPA Endorsements

Make your vote count and go out and vote in the primary elections next Tuesday, August 28th.  The Arizona Highway Patrol Association has endorsed numerous candidates running for the Arizona Legislature, U.S. Congress and local offices that have shown to be strong supporters of public safety.  In many Congressional and Legislative districts throughout Arizona the primary will determine who your next elected official will be due to many districts being considered “safe” Republican or Democratic districts.  This means that Tuesday’s election may be your only chance to make your vote count!  Below is a list of all the candidates that have been endorsed by the AHPA along with specific information about the district and whether the election will be determined in the primary election Tuesday, August 28th.  We have only listed the districts in which the AHPA has made an endorsement.  AHPA has not made endorsements in all races to ensure that only candidates that truly deserve our endorsement receive it.  Remember, if you have not already voted, please make your vote count and vote Tuesday, August 28th.  This may be your only chance to make a difference in the outcome of the election in your district.  And remember, if you are an independent, look at the AHPA endorsements and request a Republican or Democratic ballot that will allow you to vote for AHPA endorsed candidates.  To find your polling place go to https://voter.azsos.gov/.  To find out your Congressional and Legislative districts go to http://2001.azredistricting.org/.

Regardless of political affiliation, candidates were vetted carefully and many have a long relationship with AHPA.   AHPA does not consider endorsing any candidate without first making sure that candidate will hold true to their words when it comes to our issues.  AHPA has and will continue to hold any candidate receiving our endorsement accountable.  Those that have and continue to support us deserve our same consideration.
