Groups seek ruling on law impacting ballot initiatives
June 25, 2018
Several groups have asked the state supreme court to rule against a law that would make it harder to get initiative drives on the ballot. The law was passed last year, and it says that citizen ballot measures would have to be in strict compliance with election laws. That would mean even minor mistakes like a wrong type size or wrong dates could require judges to throw out signatures or entire sheets of signatures. We’ll hear more from Eric Spencer, state elections director for the Arizona Secretary of State’s office.
