Who speaks for you?
All advocacy on a political level begins with knowing who represents you in the legislature and how you can reach them to voice your views – and maybe change their minds.
Your State Legislators:
If you’re a resident of Arizona, then you have one state senator and two state representatives. Your state senator votes in the Arizona Senate; your state representatives vote in the Arizona House of Representatives. Both houses work together to pass state legislation. These state legislators represent your Arizona district, which is based on your home address and zip code.

And don’t forget…
Your governor! Katie Hobbs is the Arizona state governor, and she represents all Arizonans. Though she does not personally write or vote to pass legislation, her voice is important in influencing public opinion – and the legislators’ votes.

Your Federal Legislators:
In addition to state legislators, who write and pass bills for Arizona, you also have federal legislators, who write and pass bills for the entire country. All U.S. citizens have two U.S. senators and one U.S. representative. Your U.S. Senator votes in the U.S. Senate; your U.S. Representative votes in the U.S. House of Representatives. Like the state legislature, both houses work together to pass federal legislation.
