Be an Educated Voter Before Picking Your Candidate
The 2022 Local, State and Federal Primary Election is just a year away —-August 2, 2022
We are all getting emails, texts, direct mail and phone calls from Republican and Indepedent candidates asking to sign petitions, donate, endorse and show support. Let’s be smart about how we decide which candidates to support!
Know The Rules
IT IS CRITICAL THAT YOU KNOW THAT ONLY THE FIRST PETITION YOU SIGN COUNTS!
According to Arizona state law, ARS 16.321, the first petition signed for an office is the one that counts. It is possible to change a petition but only by going through a long arduous process.
Also be informed that the best way sign petitions is online at Arizona’s official E-QUAL website. Do not sign a physical petition form. If you do, it has a greater chance of being contested and voided.
Candidates Petitions are due to the Secretary of State in March 2022. Do your due diligence before committing your valuable endorsement. Make your one signature per office count!

Do Your Due Diligence
Our recommendation is to do your due diligence first and be sure you know where each candidate stands on the issues important to you. Many of these candidates have not committed to their positions on key issues that will affect your freedoms and right to live your life your way – such as lockdowns, vaccine mandates, religious freedom, crime, judicial enforcement, immigration policies, parental rights, gun control, taxation, school curriculums and many more.
We also need to understand who is funding their campaign and to whom they are beholden once in office. So please take the time to ask them these questions directly, do the research and get advice from numerous sources. Take the time to vet these candidates and determine who will be best to deliver on the issues you care deeply about!
