Title 16, Chapter 6

 

Running for Office?

STEP 1

The Political Committee Statement of Organization or $500 Threshold Exemption Statement must be filed BEFORE making any expenditures, accepting any contributions, distributing campaign literature or CIRCULATING PETITIONS.

WHY?

It is unlawful for a candidate to start campaign activities before filing a Statement of Organization or a $500 Threshold Exemption Statement with the County Elections Department. State law requires that a Statement of Organization or $500 Threshold Statement be filed before each election cycle (A.R.S. 16-903). Also, any change of committee information, such as new officers, must be reported to the filing officer within five business days. These changes are reported by filing an amended Statement of Organization.

A candidate must terminate their committee at the end of the election cycle.
