Is there anything new I need to know about candidate filing?



  • Must a document be filed before I seek candidacy?

    • YES! A Statement of Interest must be filed before petitions are circulated or by the date of the first petition signature, pursuant to A.R.S. §§ 16-311 & 16-341. 
    • The threshold for campaign finance filing remains the same-- a Statement of Organization must be filed when you raise or spend (in any combination) more than $1,300 dollars to run for office. Campaign finance reporting begins upon meeting or exceeding the $1,300 threshold, and a Statement of Organization must be filed within 10 days of surpassing $1,300 [A.R.S. § 16-906(C)]. Of course, you may file a Statement of Organization prior to the $1,300 threshold if you think you'll be exceeding $1,300.
