PHOENIX, Arizona: Arizona hasn't seen a ballot measure on the primary election ballot in a long time, but that could change if a proposed constitutional amendment is approved in 2012. According to the state legislative website, a referendum amendment may appear on the 2012 ballot in the state as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment.

If sent to a public vote and enacted by voters, the measure would require referendum referred to the ballot by the Arizona Legislature to be placed in the next statewide primary election, instead of the statewide general election. The formal title of the measure in legislative session is HCR 2036. The measure was proposed during 2011 state legislative session by multiple state representatives.

According to the text of the measure, if sent to voters and approved, the measure would amend Article IV, part 1, section 1 of the Arizona Constitution.[1]
