An Arizona Gubernatorial Term Limits Amendment may appear on the November 2014 general election ballot in the state of Arizona as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would define term limits for the Arizona Governor in the state constitution. The proposal was introduced by State Senator Steve Gallardo.

According to reports, the proposed amendment stems from the controversy surrounding current Governor Jan Brewer. Brewer is seeking another term, claiming her eligibility to run again since her first term as governor was not a full one. However, opposition has claimed that because she has served two terms in some capacity, she is not eligible to run again.[1]

Path to the ballot

A majority vote is required in the Arizona State Legislature to send an amendment to the ballot. Ten states allow a referred amendment to go on the ballot after a majority vote in one session of the state's legislature.
