On May 30, filing for the Arizona primaries closed, for candidates who wish to have their names placed on primary ballots. Stephen Dolgos of New River, Arizona, filed 171 signatures to run in the Americans Elect primary for Congress in the new 8th district. As far as is known, he is the first person who has filed to run in any Americans Elect primary in any state. Here is a link to the Secretary of State’s web page, showing all candidates running in primaries. Here is a link to the Dolgos campaign web page.
There will also be some individuals who file to be write-in candidates in Arizona primaries. The deadline for that is in the future. Thanks to Richard Grayson for this news.
Dolgos was permitted to obtain signatures from registered voters who are not members of a political party, as well as from voters who are registered as Americans Elect Party members.
