Arizona continues to have increasingly large numbers of registered voters participating in recent elections, with a record turnout of 34.92 percent of all registered voters casting a ballot in August’s primary election. Part of the reason for the high turnout may be due to the increase in naturalized citizens, whose population climbed by 63,857 new Arizonans between 2016 and 2020 alone, with many of them registered to vote by progressive advocacy groups.
Almost half – 28,864 – were born in Mexico.
Kristen Eastlick, Senior Vice President at the Capital Research Institute, has extensively investigated how these types of organizations recruit new voters in order to gain more votes for Democrats. She told The Arizona Sun Times, “It’s wonderful to have new citizens voting, but we’ve also documented a long history of charities conducting voter registration with the purpose of influencing the outcome of elections to favor Democrats.”
One such group dubbed “New American Voters” in Arizona boasts in a recent report, “Arizona is home to 63,857 citizens naturalized between 2016 and 2020. This number is over six times larger than the state’s November 2020 presidential election margin of 10,457 votes.”
