DescriptionArizona’s presidential preference election will feature a selection of 48 candidates — two dozen apiece on the Democratic and Republican ballots. And no, you haven’t heard of most of them.

Most of the presidential candidates are political pranksters who became bona fide candidates simply by completing a twopage form that didn’t even inquire whether the candidates are registered voters. One lives in Italy.

On Tuesday, better-known and lesser-known candidates alike were assigned spots on the politically appropriate ballot, the order of appearance based not alphabetically but by numbers drawn randomly by state officials.
