Districting

There are 30 legislative districts in Arizona, each of which is a multimember constituency. Each district elects a Senator and 2 Representatives for a two-year term. The crossing of upper and lower house districts into a single constituency is found in only seven U.S. state legislatures: Arizona, Idaho, Maryland, New Jersey, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Washington.

Term limits

Serving two-year terms, both Senators and Representatives are subject to term limits. Members may only serve four consecutive terms (or eight years) in each house. Once serving the limit, former members are re-eligible for election after 2 years.
