Election Certification/Recertification Program

The Certified Municipal Election Official designation was developed in 1993 by the Arizona Municipal Clerks' Association, in conjunction with the League of Arizona Cities and Towns, to provide training in the area of municipal election administration.

Initial Certification:
The AMCA Election Training is provided once a year (usually for 1.5 days in conjunction with the AMCA Annual Conference). To become certified, a member has five years to complete 31.5 hours of election trainings AND then complete the Election Exam with a 90% pass rate. Election Certification is valid for four years from the certification date.

Re-certification:
For those seeking to maintain their AMCA certification status, within the four years after achieving Election Certification status, a member must complete one of the following: complete 21 hours of election trainings; OR complete 10.5 hours of election trainings AND take the AMCA Elections Exam with a 90% pass rate.
