Mike Stauffer, Independent Candidate for Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, Submits 29,764 Signatures

Arizona has very stringent petition requirements for independent candidates. They need 3% of the number of registered voters who are not members of qualified parties. A few days ago, an independent candidate for Sheriff of Maricopa County submitted 29,764 signatures to meet a requirement of 19,410 signatures. The candidate is Mike Stauffer. He is a registered independent with 29 years of law enforcement experience, and he hopes to defeat the likely Republican nominee, incumbent Joe Arpaio, in November. Stauffer’s web page is http://www.votestauffer.com.

Maricopa County contains almost 60% of Arizona’s population, and includes Phoenix and many other fairly large cities.
