The Maricopa County Recorder's Office launched the process of reconfiguring its voting precincts and sought input from the public June through September 2017.
The purpose for conducting voting precinct reprecincting is to best allocate voting and polling place resources for upcoming elections. This process often occurs after each federal general election and was necessary after the 2016 General Election.
The number of voting precincts fluctuated throughout the years; after the 1999 reprecincting, there were 1,004 precincts; after the 2005 reprecincting, there were 1,142 precincts. Then, in 2012, the current 724 voting precincts were created; less than in the past because of the creation of the permanent early voting list.
