Running for Office? Starting a Political Committee?

First Step - REGISTRATION

Candidates and Political Committees must file either a Statement of Organization or $500 Threshold Exemption Statement 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 new Statement of Organization or $500 Threshold Statement be filed before each election; even if the current committee from a previous candidacy is still open.

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.R.S. 16-902.01 & 16-903).
