Political Landscape

Veridus is pleased to present you with The Purple Book: Arizona’s most comprehensive reference on the 2016 elections.


Now entirely online, consider The Purple Book your guide to Arizona’s ever-changing, always-fascinating political landscape. Within this handy resource you will find descriptions of the men and women seeking state and federal office, an overview of the political dynamics at play in districts and races across the state and a handicap of races that will determine which party will control the levers of power in Arizona.


Wondering about the voter registration breakdown of an individual legislative district? It’s all here. Curious how a district has voted in recent cycles? That too.


Whether you are red or blue, or purple, we hope you will utilize The Purple Book as you learn about the candidates, watch the 2016 elections unfold and – most importantly – vote! 


Feel free to visit to reference The Purple Book after the 2016 elections, where Veridus will provide frequent updates on Primary and General Election results.
