Born and raised in the Grand Canyon State, Secretary of State Katie Hobbs has dedicated her life to solving difficult challenges for Arizonans. In her time as a social worker and running a domestic violence shelter, Katie saw firsthand the price Arizonans pay when their elected leaders fail to address the problems people are facing every day. Katie decided to run for office herself, and in the legislature, Katie worked with two Republican governors to provide healthcare for hundreds of thousands of Arizonans and to hold criminals accountable by clearing the rape kit backlog. As Secretary of State during the 2020 election, Katie’s office conducted the safest and most secure election in Arizona’s history amid unprecedented challenges to our democracy.
