Keep the AZ Legislature in check

Sign Petitions!

At PCDP we have referendums 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.

If you would like to keep track of all of the initiatives, referenda, constitutional amendments and recall efforts,

What is an Initiative?

A process of collecting and verifying signatures that allows citizens to propose a new statute or constitutional amendment

Voters say “Hey we have an idea, let’s vote on THIS.”

What is a Referendum?

A process of collecting and verifying signatures that allows citizens to refer a law that passed the legislature to the ballot for voters to decide whether to uphold or repeal the law; this process is available in 26 states, including Arizona.

Voters say “We’re not sure we like what you just passed Legislature. We want to vote on it!”

Who is a Circulator?

An individual who gathers signatures for a candidate, ballot initiative, or citizens’ referendum. Qualifications vary depending on the purpose of gathering signatures. Some petitions may require the circulator to “check in/out” when they pick up their materials.
