By Bailey Ludlam
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah: 2010 is proving to be fairly similar to recent election years in Utah history. Currently, two measures have been certified for the statewide ballot, both are legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. In the recent past Utahns have generally voted on one to five measures, most of which are referred by the legislature.
For the 2010 ballot, according to the Utah Secretary of State, a total of five initiatives were filed and approved for petition circulation. The deadline has already passed and about three initiatives remain pending. Supporters of the Utah Ethics Commission Initiative and Utah Redistricting Commission reported that they were unable to meet the petition drive deadline. However, both groups plan to continue petition circulations in an attempt to qualify for the 2012 ballot.
Measures currently certified for the November 2, 2010 ballot are listed below.
|Vote by Secret Ballot||Elections||Extend the right to Utah citizens to use a secret ballot|
