Information for Circulators
A circulator is someone who gathers the signatures of qualified electors (registered voters) on petitions for candidate nominations, new party recognition; and/or ballot measures which include initiatives, referenda, or recall petitions.
In addition to the information below, we recommend reviewing our Circulator Training Guide.
A circulator must register with the Arizona Secretary of State's Office if the circulator:
- is not a resident of this state and will circulate candidate petitions, recall petitions, or statewide initiative or referendum petitions.
- is paid to circulate recall petitions, statewide initiative, or referendum petitions (whether or not the circulator is a resident of this state).
A.R.S. §§ 16-321(D); 19-118; 19-205.01(A).
A circulator who is required to register with the Secretary of State’s Office can do so in Circulator Portal.
