It’s Easier to Sign Candidate Petitions than You Think – You can Sign Online
Expect to see lots of paper petitions for Candidates on the Petition Table at our PebbleCreek Republican Club meetings. Candidates need to file their petitions by April 4, 2022 and need thousands of signatures.
Before you sign a paper petition, here’s what you need to know
As per ARS 16-321, you can only sign ONE petition for the same office UNLESS more than one candidate is to be elected to the same office. You should only sign one petition for U.S. Senator, Arizona Governor, Superintendent of Public Instruction. If you sign two petitions for the same office, the petition that you signed first will count and your signature on subsequent petitions will be invalid.
Let’s be honest. We have all signed more than one petition because we either forgot which candidate’s petition we signed; or we didn’t know we could only sign one and thought we were helping the candidates get on the ballot. Sometimes, we didn’t sign a petition because we weren’t at a meeting but wanted to see a candidate on the ballot.
Here’s a solution – Sign a petition at E-Qual Online Petitions
This is an Arizona Government website managed by the AZ Secretary of State that allows you to sign petitions online. It is called E-Qual Online Petitions.
Why sign online?
Here’s the caveat - You need to be authenticated. You are required to provide your name, date of birth and either Driver’s License OR Voter Registration Number AND last 4 digits of your SSN. The information is required to access your voter registration record.
If you sign using E-Qual Online Petitions, make sure you hit the SUBMIT button. A confirmation number will appear.

PebbleCreek Communications – October 12, 2020
The PCHOA Board and Rules Compliance Committee have received numerous questions regarding political signs and flags. The Rules for these can be found in PCHOA Rules Sections 8.10 & 8.11
When the political flags were first observed, the Board checked with the PCHOA attorney for a recommendation regarding them. The attorney said these were the same as political signs and should be allowed. The Rules Committee and the Board discussed this, and the Board decided that the following changes would be made:
The Board has adopted the following Rules as per Section 2.3 of the PCHOA Rules:
1. Political flags are now allowed in addition to political signs.
2. The size limit of the flag must not exceed 3 feet x 5 feet.
3. The flags will need to be removed in the same time frame as the signs.
4. These flags cannot be flown from a vertical flagpole. They can only be flown from a flag standard mounted to the house.
5. Aggregate sign size remains the same.
6. There have been no other change to political signs/flags with the exception only one political flag can be flown in addition to the signs.
The Rules Committee will work with the Board to see if this change shall be temporary or permanent. If Homeowners have comments regarding this issue, they are encouraged to submit them to the Rules Committee in writing. These can be turned in at Eagle’s Nest Front Desk.
