WE TURNED IN 16,704 SIGNATURES – ALMOST 3 TIMES THE REQUIRED AMOUNT, WITH QUALIFYING AMOUNTS FROM ALL 15 ARIZONA COUNTIES!
Thank you so much to everyone who helped us get on the ballot!
The minimum requirement of signatures for statewide candidates is 5,651 with qualifying amounts from 3 counties. I have long said that as a Statewide Candidate I want to represent ALL of Arizona, and set our goal to exceed the signature thresholds in EVERY county. My travels across the state on this mission, and our team’s tireless efforts to reach all of Arizona, have obviously been well documented here on Facebook.
Last week we turned in 16,424 signatures with qualifying amounts in 14 counties, yet were 93 short in Mohave County which kept us from reaching that ultimate ‘every county’ goal. However, we had 24 hours left. So Sean and I raced to Lake Havasu City and knocked on door after door, and right before the 5 p.m. cutoff we turned in 107 additional Mohave signatures along with more petitions for other counties that arrived in the mail from volunteers. We not only accomplished the goal, we surpassed it in a huge way with over 10,000 more total signatures than the required minimums!
This was truly a community effort. The majority of the signatures were collected by our team and a hard working grassroots army of unpaid friends and volunteers. I cannot thank you all enough! Today we showed Arizona that collecting qualifying signature amounts from ALL 15 counties CAN BE DONE! THANK YOU!
“I have to say, this shows TRUE DEDICATION TO ALL OF ARIZONA!! Jeff DeWit had enough signatures to qualify for the ballot, which includes requirements for THREE of Arizona’s 15 counties, but Jeff wanted ALL 15… He was short in Mohave County and came all the way out here with ONE DAY LEFT and got what he needed… I am truly IMPRESSED!!” – Samuel Medrano, Bullhead City Councilman
