Americans Elect is a 501c4 corporation registered in Washington, DC with the goal of selecting and electing its own candidates for President and Vice President of the United States in 2012. In October of 2010, it also registered itself as a political committee in the state of Arizona, a move which would enable it to collect signatures and obtain presidential ballot access in Arizona for the 2012 elections.
Despite multiple anecdotal reports indicating that Americans Elect was using contractors to collect ballot petition signatures in Arizona, Americans Elect apparently never surpassed the $500 in spending that would have required it to begin filing reports with the Arizona Secretary of State’s office.
As of today, the Americans Elect registration as a political committee in the state of Arizona has been terminated. In the state of Arizona at least, Americans Elect appears to have lapsed into complete inactivity.
