Maricopa County lies in central Arizona and is home to about 3.9 million people. Maricopa County houses about 60% of Arizona’s population, and is the fourth largest county in the nation. Maricopa County’s population is on the rise: according to a 2007 report published in Forbes magazine, four of Maricopa County’s cities are among the top ten fastest-growing cities in the U.S.
Although Maricopa County traditionally votes along Republican lines, the county did narrowly reject Proposition 107 in the 2006 election. Prop 107 would have banned same-sex marriage and limited benefits to domestic partners. Although Arizona recognizes domestic partnerships, it defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman, and does not recognize same-sex marriages performed out of state.
Maricopa County has garnered national attention for its controversial law enforcement tactics, many of which were implemented under the supervision of Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Maricopa County allows juveniles to be tried and sentenced as adults, uses a voluntary Chain Gang, and has erected a “Tent City,” where 2,000 convicted men and women serve out their time.
