The votes in Arizona for the Navajo Nation reveal the reservation went Democratic by more than a 2-1 majority, while the off-reservation areas in both Apache and Navajo counties were even more Republican-oriented.

Election data in both counties stated a sample of the ballots on the reservation precincts showed heavy support for Kyrsten Sinema, the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate.

On Nov. 8, vote totals in Arizona showed Krysten Sinema losing by one percentage point to Republican Martha McSally.
