My name is Reginald Bolding and I’m running for Arizona Secretary of State.


Reginald Bolding’s single mother worked two jobs to put food on the table for her sons. The sacrifices she made showed Reginald what hard work and perseverance looked like.

Bolding, inspired by his mom, defied the odds to become a first generation college graduate, Special Education math teacher, civic engagement champion and now is the House Democratic Leader in the Arizona House of Representatives.

Reginald has dedicated his time in the state legislature to building diverse, non-partisan and bipartisan coalitions to fight for Arizona residents who are too often overlooked. Bolding led the advocacy charge and fought against egregious voter suppression legislation. He’s also spearheaded efforts to help police better serve and protect all Arizonans while being held accountable.

A chance encounter with future President Barack Obama inspired Reginald to get involved in politics and service, becoming an organizer during the Obama campaign. His commitment to service continued with becoming a Special Education math teacher in one of Arizona’s most underserved neighborhoods. Bolding understands firsthand the obstacles and barriers faced by youth and families in these communities.

In addition to serving as the House Democratic Leader, Reginald is the founder of the largest Black-led voting rights and community engagement organizations in the state. They are responsible for registering over 50,000 qualified people to vote, providing opportunities for thousands of young people to engage in politics, and helping deliver real changes for hardworking Arizonans and their families.
