Arizona 2008 ballot measures
Eight statewide ballot propositions were on the November 4, 2008 ballot in Arizona. Six were citizen-initiated propositions, one was a legislative referral placed on the ballot by the Arizona State Legislature and one, a proposal to raise legislative salaries, was a commission referral.
- Just two of the statewide ballot measures were approved by voters.
- Supporters of nine initiatives filed signatures with the Arizona Secretary of State by the July 3 deadline; four as initiated state statutes and five as initiated constitutional amendments. However, problems with lower-than-normal rates of valid signatures meant that three of the nine did not make the ballot.
- Arizona Secretary of State Jan Brewer had referred flawed initiative petition sheets to the state's attorney general for a possible criminal investigation.
- Arizona voters in many school districts voted on a school district consolidation question.
- Through 2006, a total of one hundred and ninety-one citizen-initiated ballot propositions had appeared on Arizona's ballot since the beginning of the process in 1912.
- With six initiatives on the 2008 ballot, the historical total of Arizona initiatives through the 2008 elections came to 197.
- For information on other citizen initiatives that attempted but failed to make the ballot, see Arizona 2008 citizen initiatives.
