The Arizona Daily Star’s reporters publish a Pueblo Politics blog, and here’s their article on the upcoming Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission process. “The 5 member commission has to nominate 25 people by Jan. 8 to serve on the Independent Redistricting Commission. The top Democratic and Republican leaders in the House and Senate will each get a pick, then the four appointed members will pick the fifth member.” Currently, The Commission consists of five members: two Democrats, two Republicans, and one Independent. The Commissioners are: Daniel Elder (REP), Joshua Hall (DEM), James Huntwork (REP), Steven W. Lynn, Chairman (IND), and Andi Minkoff, Vice Chairman (DEM) (info from their website).
