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.
