Title: Establishes a Recall Primary Election for a Recall Election

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that establishes a recall primary election for a recall election, applied retroactively from December 31, 2011.

Highlights:
  • Establishes a recall primary election to be followed, if necessary, by a recall general election, whereas existing law limited recall elections to just one general election (Sec. 1).
  • Specifies that if only one candidate remains after a recall primary election that candidate will be declared as the winner of the recall general election (Sec. 1).
  • Specifies that if the office subject to recall is regularly subject to a partisan primary election, the recall primary shall also be held as a partisan primary election (Sec. 1).
  • Authorizes a party designation on the recall ballot, whereas existing law prohibits such designation (Sec. 3).
  • Requires candidates other than the officer being recalled to submit a nomination petition with the same number of signatures that were required for nomination petitions for that office during the last election, whereas existing law requires the number of signatures to be equal to 2 percent of the total votes cast for all candidates (Sec. 2).
  • Prohibits the provisions of this bill from going into effect until the Arizona Constitution is amended to allow recall primary elections (Sec. 6).
