PHOENIX, Arizona: The clock is ticking for supporters of a proposed veto referendum in the state of Arizona. Petition drive organizers have until July 19, 2011 to collect a total of 86,405 signatures in order to obtain ballot access for their proposal.

The measure seeks to repeal parts of Senate Bill 1200, which would eliminate the right to a trial jury for those who have been accused of driving while intoxicated. The referendum is being proposed by the group called Committee for the Right to Jury Trial. The date that the referendum was filed with the Arizona Secretary of State was May 5, 2011.[1]

If certified, the referendum would appear on the November 6, 2012 general election.
