  1. Thanks to the Weekly for pointing out the ridiculous structure of the Arizona primary election. I decided to run on my own, basically to see if I could. And yes, I got my name on the ballot.
    So did many others who are just going to confuse the voters. As the Weekly let us know, it was a simple process with little or no financial investment- the cost of a stamp, maybe a notary, unless you have a friend who’ll do it for free. All of us received a priority mail letter- $17.46 cost- to let us know our official position on the ballot from the Election committee. It was possible, possibly going through you-tube to have had 100,00 names on our ballot. That would have cost $1.7 million. Our Secretary of State should take this as a wake-up call to have some perameters in place, and possibly some investment required from the candidates. I am reminded of Stephen Colbert trying unsuccessfully to get on the ballot in his home state. After paying a filing fee of $1500, they would not let him run because he didn’t appear serious and would only make a mockery of the election. Look at the potential in Arizona to be able to do just that.
