Arizona Press Covers Details of Signature-Verification Process for Top-Two Open Primary

Many newspapers in Arizona story have carried this article, concerning why Arizona election officials determined the top-two open primary initiative doesn’t have enough valid signatures. The reporter interviewed the head of the Maricopa County elections office. Her office counted signatures of registered voters, whether the address on the petition matched the address on the voter registration records or not.

    Arizona apparently does not have a procedure for a full check after a sample check like California does; so it is apparently required that the proponents have to go to court to get the the SOS to comply with the Constitution, which simply specifies 15% of registered voters.

    It sounds like it is with the MOE even if Maricopa elections checks are valid.
