Text of measure
The summary from Arizona Legislative Council read:
Proposition 101 would amend several sections of the Arizona Constitution to modernize certain out-of-date language including references to people with disabilities.
Proposition 101 would also amend the Arizona Constitution to change certain voting requirements to conform with the United States Constitution and other federal laws. Proposition 101 would change the minimum voting age to 18 and eliminate the one-year residency requirement for voting. Under Arizona law, there is a twenty-nine day residency requirement, which remains unchanged. These changes are already enforced in Arizona pursuant to federal law.
