Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:

A vote FOR this proposal, which would add a new section 10 to Article XVII (the Schedule Article), would require the language of the State Constitution to be “gender neutral,” and would direct the Secretary of State to revise and reprint the State Constitution implementing this provision as soon as practicable after the approval of this amendment.
A vote AGAINST this proposal will retain in the State Constitution those provisions not currently gender neutral.
A constitutional amendment to state that the language in the Constitution shall be construed to be gender neutral and to direct the Secretary of State to revise and reprint the Constitution to implement such construction.[1]
