IRC Application Deadline is August 20th:

It’s official: Arizonans can now apply to serve on the next Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission!

The Arizona Democratic Party is partnering with the National Democratic Redistricting Committee to offer free online information sessions about the IRC and how Arizonans can apply.

The Independent Redistricting Commission is a once-in-a-decade public service opportunity. If we want fair maps in the 2020s, it is important that Arizonans from every county and all backgrounds apply to serve on the IRC. If you or someone you know might be interested in applying to serve, be sure to sign up for a session, and share with your networks!

Eligibility:
 
Per the Arizona Constitution, prospective Independent Redistricting Commissioners must meet the following eligibility criteria:
  • Each member shall be a registered Arizona voter who has been continuously registered with the same political party or registered as unaffiliated with a political party for three or more years immediately preceding appointment.
  • Within the three years previous to appointment, members shall not have been appointed to, elected to, or a candidate for any other public office, including precinct committeeman or committeewoman but not including school board member or officer, and shall not have served as an officer of a political party, or served as a registered paid lobbyist or as an officer of a candidate’s campaign committee.
