Contacting Public Officials

Engaging with public officials allows Arizonans to make their voices and opinions heard and ensures that their needs and values are represented in government.

In 2017, only 11% of Arizonans reported that they contacted their public officials, a percentage on par with the national average. Tracking alongside this behavior, Gallup polling data from 2009 show that only 10% of Arizonans feel that their elected officials represent their interests.

Education plays a larger role in this indicator: 3% of Arizonans with a high school degree have contacted their public officials in the past year, compared with 18.5% of those with a bachelor’s degree or higher.
