NOTICE: 02/15/24

Dear Candidates,   

Emergency legislation (HB2785) signed by the Governor on Friday, February 9, 2024, changed key deadlines for Candidates running for Partisan offices in the Primary Election. If you are running for any municipal office, please read our guidance below.

New Deadlines 

The Primary Election has moved up one week to Tuesday, July 30, 2024. Due to this change all corresponding deadlines have been moved up one week:

  • Candidate Filing now begins on March 2, 2024
  • Candidate Filing closes on April 1, 2024 at 5:00 p.m.


Deadlines for write-in candidates have also moved up one week:

E-Qual – Countywide and Board of Supervisor candidates only 

Candidates running for county office in Arizona may collect up to 100% of their required nomination petition signatures through the E-Qual system. E-Qual enables eligible voters to electronically sign these petitions.  

The use of E-Qual is optional and only available to select offices. All candidates may collect their signatures using hard copy petitions.   

We have updated the E-Qual system to reflect the new Primary Date of July 30, 2024.  As a candidate, you can choose whether you want to use your current E-Qual nomination petition with the August 6, 2024 date or open a new E-Qual nomination petition with the July 30, 2024 date by following the attached instructions. The instructions will include the simple steps to close your existing petition and open a new petition. It will also show you how to print your petitions to include them in your filing.  


Statement of Interest Guidance 

Do not submit a new statement of interest. If you have already submitted a Statement of Interest with the August 6 Primary Date, it is grandfathered in and will be considered valid for this filing period.  


Petition Guidance 

Do not correct petitions that voters have already signed. Petitions with the August 6 Primary Date in the header are grandfathered in and will be accepted as valid during the upcoming filing period.

We will not reject any nomination petition forms that have the August 6 petition date regardless of whether the petition signatures are dated before or after February 9. Please note however, that as the filing officer, we cannot provide legal advice and any petitions can be subject to court challenge.  


Appointment Schedule & Nomination Paper

A representative from our office will contact you soon to schedule a filing appointment. The Nomination Paper will be due at the time of your filing appointment.

For your convenience, attached is an updated election calendar and timeline for the Primary Election and an E-Qual Candidate Guide. Please note Non-Partisan Candidates running in the General Election are not affected by this change.  

We appreciate your patience as our team works through this new legislation.
