Republican Paul Gosar is defending his seat against Democrat Mikel Weisser in CD4, which includes much of central and western Arizona.
Arizonans will decide two statewide ballot initiatives. Proposition 205 would legalize and tax recreational marijuana in the state, and Prop 206 would raise Arizona’s minimum wage to $12 per hour by 2020. Flagstaff voters will also decide another local minimum wage increase to $15 an hour over the next five years.
All seats in the state house and senate are up for grabs, including legislative districts 1, 5, 6 and 7 in northern and central Arizona.
