Text of measure

The language appeared on the ballot as:[1]

1. DELETES CONSTITUTIONAL REQUIREMENT THAT SECRETARY OF STATE LIVE IN SALEM
QUESTION - Shall the constitutional requirement that the Secretary of State live in Salem be deleted?

EXPLANATION - Constitutional amendment. The present provision requires the Governor, Secretary of State and State Treasurer to keep their official records, books and papers “at the seat of government.” It also requires the Secretary of State, but not the Governor or Treasurer, to live “at the seat of government.” This measure removes the requirement that the Secretary of State live in Salem, without changing the requirement that records must be kept there.
