The Arizona Democratic Party is the affiliate of the Democratic Party in the U.S. state of Arizona. Its headquarters are in Phoenix.[2]

Party organization

The Arizona Democratic Party is organized into three parts: the state committee, the executive committee, and the executive board.

State Committee

The state committee is composed of "the chairperson of each county committee of the Democratic Party of Arizona, plus one (1) member of the county committee for every three (3) members of the county committee elected pursuant to statute."[3] The state committee meets biennially. A state committee member has four duties:

a) Canvass and campaign only on behalf of Democratic candidates. b) Assist in registration programs and in turning out a maximum Democratic vote. c) Support the permanent State Party organization as well as their County and District Party committees. d) Encourage financial support of the State Democratic Party, their County Committees and their districts.[3]

The state committee has many officers including: Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, First Vice-Chair (who is required to be a different gender and county residence than the chair), three Vice-Chairwomen, three Vice Chairmen, Educational Coordinator, and Affirmative Action Moderator.

Executive committee

The executive committee meets quarterly. The executive committee consists of, "the County Chairperson and the first and second County Vice-Chairpersons from each county; the State Committee-elected National Committeemen, the State Committee-elected National Committeewomen; three (3) members-at-large from each Congressional District; the President or a representative of the President of the Young Democrats of Arizona; the President or representative of the President of the Arizona Federation of Democratic Women's Clubs; and the other State Officers as listed in Article III of these bylaws. The Chair of the State Committee shall serve as Chair of the Executive Committee".[3] The executive committee has several duties. "The Executive Committee shall approve the budget and amendments to the budget, approve specific contracts extending beyond the Chair's term, act as the final board of arbitrators for State Committeepersons seeking reinstatement after removal, and perform such duties as assigned by the State Chair".[3]

Executive Board

The executive board duties are assigned by the chair. It also, "acts on behalf of the state committee between State Committee meetings".[3] The executive board meets at least quarterly. Members of the executive board are, "State Chair, First Vice-Chair, Senior Vice-Chair, Vice-Chairwomen, Vice-Chairmen, Secretary, Treasurer, Educational Coordinator, and Affirmative Action Moderator, the State Committee-elected National Committeemen and the State Committee-elected National Committeewomen".[3]

National role

The State Committee selects candidates to become presidential electors. These candidates pledge to vote for the National Democratic Convention's presidential and Vice Presidential nominee.[3] Additionally, the chair and First Vice-Chair serve on Democratic National Committee.[3] The State committee also elects the National Committee Members which represent Arizona.[3] These members serve a term of four years and must have previously been an elected precinct committee person.[3] National Committee members are to be as evenly split between male and female as possible.[3]
