Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:

The Arizona Constitution creates the office of justice of the peace, but is silent on the qualifications for the office. A state statute has been interpreted by Arizona courts to require that a justice of the peace be at least 18 years of age and reside in the precinct from which the justice is elected. There is no requirement that a justice of the peace be an attorney.

Proposition 103 would amend the Arizona Constitution to provide that a temporary justice of the peace must have the same qualifications as a justice of the peace, except that the temporary justice of the peace does not have to reside in the precinct in which the justice will serve. Under Proposition 103, a temporary justice of the peace would not be required to be an attorney.[2] [3]
