Joe Arpaio Recall: Here's How to Sign the Petition

Since we first started getting details about the effort to recall Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, readers have asked us how they can sign the petition.

Respect Arizona filled us in on a few ways to signing the petition, as the committee is attempting to gather more than 300,000 valid signatures to trigger the recall election.

One method is to do it all on your own, which is detailed on the website.

It has to be printed out on specific paper, and double-sided, and has to be notarized once you -- and anyone else -- signs it. As detailed on the website, you can mail the petition to Respect Arizona, or they'll pick it up from you.

One of the volunteers tells New Times today that you can pick up a petition from them, or they'll deliver one to you, if needed.

They're also starting to go out to public spaces, like libraries, college campuses, and public events, so people can gather signatures that way.

We're told that when those get organized, the locations will be posted weekly on the Respect Arizona Facebook page, so you can find out how to run into them.

Just in case you need it, a copy of the petition can be found below:
