Signs not requiring a permit:

A. No sign permit shall be required for the following types of signs:

8.  Political Signs. Political signs of not more than sixteen (16) square feet on residential lots and thirty-two (32) square feet on nonresidential properties are permitted during an election campaign; provided, that campaign signs are not posted more than sixty (60) days preceding the election and are removed within fifteen (15) days following the election.

Political Action Committees

PACs (Political Action Committees)  must file a Statement of Organization if they fall under Arizona Revised Statute 16-901(20)(f):

“An association or combination of persons that meets both of the following requirements:

” 1) Is organized, conducted or combined for the primary purpose of influencing the result of any election in this state or in any county, city, town or other political subdivision in this state, including a judicial retention election.

“2) Knowingly receives contributions or makes expenditures of more than five hundred dollars in connection with any election during a calendar year, including a judicial retention election.”

However, Arizona HB 2296 “Prohibits an agency or political subdivision to require a 501(c)(3) organization to register as a political committee.”  It also exempts a person or entity from registering as a campaign committee if they are tax exempt under section 501(a) of the Internal Revenue Code and meet certain other requirements (including being in good standing with the Arizona Corporation Commission).

This bill was passed into law on June 1, 2016; for more information, please contact the Town Clerk’s office.
