S1492: ELECTION LAW AMENDMENTS Questions/Comments

Various changes relating to election law. Modifies various filing deadlines. A nomination petition for the office of presidential elector is required to be filed 80 to 100 days before the general election, instead of 60 to 90 days before. A candidate's name printed on the ballot is prohibited from including a slogan, promotional word or phrase, or any word that does not actually constitute a nickname. The maximum number of days before an election that a county board of supervisors is permitted to cancel the election if only one person files a nominating petition to fill certain offices is increased to 105 days, from 75 days. The county recorder or the city or town clerk is required to review petitions for a new political party to be represented by an official party ballot, select a random sample of 20 percent of the total signatures, individually verify and certify those signatures, and calculate and project the total number of valid signatures to determine whether the party will be recognized. If there is not a sufficient number of persons available to appoint precinct workers who are qualified voters of that precinct, the inspector, marshal, judges and clerks must be qualified voters of Arizona. The deadline for Legislative Council to prepare and file an impartial analysis of the provisions of each ballot proposal is changed to 10 days preceding the regular primary election, instead of 60 days. County boards of supervisors are required to deliver the canvass to the Secretary of State within 14 days after the primary election, increased from 10 days, and the Secretary of State is required to canvass the return by the third Monday following the primary election, instead of the second Monday following.
