|The executive department shall consist of the governor, secretary of state, state treasurer, attorney general, and superintendent of public instruction...|
The Arizona Constitution requires all of the officers in the state's executive department, including the treasurer, to be at least 25 years old, a U.S. citizen for 10 years, and an Arizona resident for five years.
|No person shall be eligible to any of the offices mentioned in section 1 of this article except a person of the age of not less than twenty-five years, who shall have been for ten years next preceding his election a citizen of the United States, and for five years next preceding his election a citizen of Arizona.|
Arizonans elect their treasurer in midterm election years (2006, 2010, 2014, etc.) for a term of four years. The winner assumes office on the first Monday of January after his or her election. If no candidates receives a majority (over 50%) of the votes, a run-off election is held between the two candidates that received the largest amount. If the two candidates in the run-off receive an equal number of votes, the state legislature chooses a winner. The treasurer assumes office on the first Monday of January following their election.

B. B. The person having a majority of the votes cast for the office voted for shall be elected.

The person receiving the highest number of votes at the second election for the office is elected, but if the two persons have an equal number of votes for the office, the two houses of the legislature at its next regular session shall elect forthwith, by joint ballot, one of such persons for said office.
