The map will govern Arizona’s congressional elections for the next decade.

U.S. Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez wrote April 9 the new map conforms to the Voting Rights Act of 1965. He also wrote the Department of Justice has no objections to the new map, which will first come into use for the Arizona congressional primary elections in August.
