Arizona Eligibility for State Office, Proposition 103 was on the November 8, 1988 election ballot in Arizona as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. It was approved.[1]

This amendment removed a clause of the State Constitution that required a candidate to be male to be eligible for state offices. This clause had become largely a formality as there was another clause allowing women to run for office that, according to officials, superseded the clause in question.[1]
