Campaign Finance Reporting

When running for elected office, candidates should determine whether they are required to register a candidate committee. Candidates for legislative and statewide office must register a candidate committee with the Secretary of State if the candidate receives contributions or makes expenditures, in any combination, of at least $1,300 in connection with that candidacy. Committees are created by filing a Statement of Organization using the Secretary of State's online campaign finance system: BEACON. The Statement of Organization must be filed within 10 days after meeting the monetary threshold.

Candidates for federal office do not register a committee with the Secretary of State. Instead, federal candidates must file a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission.

Decennial Redistricting for 2022 Election Cycle

What is the Independent Redistricting Commission?

The Independent Redistricting Commission (IRC) is established in the Arizona Constitution and meets every ten years to review legislative and congressional district boundaries in light of the data reported in the United States Census. (Ariz. Const. Art. IV, § 1). The IRC is made up of five citizens, of which no more than two can be registered members of the same political party. The four partisan members are chosen by the respective party leaders of the Arizona State Senate and House of Representatives. These four members then choose an applicant with no party affiliation to serve as chair of the IRC. Learn more on their webiste at irc.az.gov.

What does "redistricting" mean?

Arizona's voters elect legislative and congressional candidates based on the district in which the voter resides. These districts are determined by the IRC and are reviewed every 10 years following the U.S. Census. Redistricting occurs when the IRC reviews current legislative and congressional district boundaries, assesses changes in population since the districts were last drawn, then redraws district lines to account for these population changes.

What does this mean if I want to run for office?

According to Arizona's Constitution, the commission must be established by February 28, 2021. Based on historic practice, our Office expects the districts will be finalized and approved by early 2022. Candidates should be aware that new districts will take effect immediately following their approval and will be utilized for the 2022 election cycle. Please see our Candidate Redistricting Guide for further information.
