My 2022 Ballot

OfficeMy VoteDescription
US State SenatorMark KellyMark Kelly didn’t really make a name for himself in the Senate, but he’s a reliable democratic vote. Blake Masters meanwhile seems to have inherited MAGA type of ideology, seems rather squishy and is mostly a Peter Thiel acolyte.
US Rep in Congress District 4Greg StantonSimilar to Mark Kelly, a reliable democratic vote in the house.
State GovernorKatie HobbsShe’s been a dissapointing candidate on the campaign trail but Kari Lake has spread misinformation about vaccines and Trump’s election. She’s MAGA through and through and that is disqualifying.
State Senator District 8Juan MendezGoing with the democratic slate.
State Representative District 8Athena Salman, Melody HernandezGoing with the democratic slate.
Secretary of StateAdrian FontesAn experienced politician. Finchem was literally in the protest on January 6th. He’s the worst person on this ballot with a close runner up being Hamadeh.
Attorney GeneralKris MayesMayes is extremely experienced. Hamadeh tricked Trump into an endorsement and that is the only way he won the nomination. He’s a joke.
State TreasurerMartin QuezadaKimberly Lee has gone full MAGA, I’m out.
Superintendent of Public InstructionKathy HoffmanTom Horne won’t go away. He should.
