The Arizona Centennial Committee Initiative did not appear on the November 2, 2010 ballot in the state of Arizona as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have eliminated discrimination in the state of Arizona. The petition drive deadline to submit signatures for ballot consideration was July 1, 2010. However, sponsors did not submit signatures by the deadline, according to the Arizona Secretary of State's office.[1]

Text of measure

Summary of initiative

The summary of the initiative, as stated on the Arizona Secretary of State's website, read:

A Constitutional Amendment to Article II, Section 4 of the Arizona Constitution relating to the right of due process for all citizens of this state, by adding the equal protection of the Laws Clause of Section 1 of the Amendment XIV of the United States constitution to eliminate state discrimination.[2]

Constitutional changes

If enacted by Arizona voters, the measure would have amended the Arizona Constitution by adding to Section 4 of Article 2 to read:[2]

"No person born or naturalized within the jurisdiction of the United State shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law; nor deny to any citizen within the jurisdiction of this state, the equal protection of the laws."

Path to the ballot

The group organizing the circulation effort must have gathered the required 230,046 signatures for proposed constitutional amendments by the July 1, 2010 deadline.[3]
