Signature requirements set for 2012 congressional candidate petitions

Our office has released the 2012 signature requirements for congressional candidates.

Signature requirements, established by a formula set in state statute, are based upon state and local voter registration figures as of March 1, 2012. Nomination petitions for federal, statewide and legislative candidates must be submitted to the Secretary of State’s Office. The office is located on the 7th floor of the Executive Tower at the state Capitol, 1700 W. Washington Street in Phoenix.

The first day that candidates may file petitions is April 30. The last day for candidates to file is May 30.

Note: Please see the attached requirements for valid signatures that must be collected and submitted by candidates hoping to qualify for the 2012 ballot in Arizona. Legislative district signature requirements will be available shortly after the Department of Justice approves maps submitted by the Independent Redistricting Commission.
