A summary of midterm election results impacting the Arizona fire service and fire districts are listed. Election returns reflect 99% of precincts reporting. A total of 1,739,186 ballots were cast with a record midterm voter turnout of 46.80%.
- Governor Doug Ducey (R) easily won reelection over challenger David Garcia (D).
- The Arizona Senate will remain a 17-13 GOP advantage as neither party gained seats. The Democrats last controlled the Senate in 1992.
- The Arizona House (currently a 35-25 GOP advantage) appears headed for a 31-29 split with a net gain of 4 seats for the Democrats. Three incumbent Republicans lost their bid for reelection, and one open seat was lost in LD-17 (Chandler). Todd Clodfelter (LD-10, Tucson), Jill Norgaard (LD-18, Tempe-Phoenix), Maria Syms (LD-28, Paradise Valley) were the GOP incumbents who lost seats. The GOP maintains the majority in the House which they have maintained since 1966.
