Maricopa County’s 2020 election for County Attorney is in full swing, which could mean huge changes in mass incarceration in the country’s 3rd largest county.

This election season is bringing the Maricopa County Attorney position to the ballot. The incumbent Allister Adel is concerned with keeping the status quo. However, during her tenure she has implemented smaller necessary changes, such as the policy that would drop marijuana-possession charges if the person was to obtain a marijuana card. The Democratic challenger, Julie Gunnigle, promises to lower incarceration by 25% and bring changes to how the entire system is run in Maricopa County. With ever-changing demographics, how the county will vote is still up in the air.
