Independent Candidate for Arizona Governor Web Page Seeks to Hire Paid Circulators

Ballot Access News

Noah Dyer is an independent candidate for Governor of Arizona. The independent petition requirement in Arizona is severe; it requires 37,890 signatures. The only other states that require more signatures in 2018 for a statewide independent are Georgia, Nebraska, and Texas. Dyer’s campaign web page includes a section soliciting individuals to become paid petitioners for him. He is paying 75 cents per signature.
Rocky De La Fuente has a federal lawsuit arguing that the number of signatures for a statewide independent is unconstitutional, because the state requires substantially fewer signatures for a new party. The new party petition this year is 23,041.
