This year, the Arizona legislature produced some truly horrific bills that threaten the integrity of our democracy. At PCDP we have all the current initiatives and referenda related to elections that still require signatures; these petitions cannot be signed online. Depending on the availability of these petitions, you may be able to circulate them yourself by signing them out from our front desk.

SB1819

This bill promotes a list of ten ballot fraud countermeasures, including bar and QR codes; those codes could violate the ballot secrecy guarantee of the Arizona Constitution. Additionally, it gives an outside group access to the voter registration database, limits Secretary of State’s authority to defend state election laws, and gives authority to the Attorney General. Some limits only apply during the term of the current Secretary of State. It also requires Game and Fish to assist with voter registration. Spends $500,000 to investigate social media. Requires detailed monitoring of county voter registration efforts. Signing this petition will help put parts of SB1819 on the 2022 ballot.
