Screw a primary challenge to Kyrsten Sinema in 2024, recall her now!!

It is ridiculously easy to do in Arizona. We shouldn't have to wait until 2024 to get rid of her. The recall will give her time to think about which party she actually was elected through but not enough time to ride out the term.

Laws governing recall in Arizona

Laws governing recall in Arizona are defined in Article 8 of the Arizona Constitution.

The authority to conduct a recall election in Arizona applies to "Every public officer in the state of Arizona, holding an elective office, either by election or appointment."

Filing the recall petition

A recall can be filed against any public officer on any grounds. The recall may not be filed until after the elected official has been in office in his or her first term for at least six months. This six-month limit does not apply to state legislators. In the case of state legislators, a recall petition may commence five days after the start of their first legislative session after their election. In the case of other elected officials, there is no six-month limit for subsequent terms in office.

A recall petition must be filed at the office in which the officer being recalled files for nomination. The petition must contain a general statement explain the recall and not exceed 200 words. This petition must be signed by the sponsors who swear an oath that all signatures collected will be valid signatures.
