The Arizona Mandatory Citizen Enforcement Initiative did not appear on the November 2, 2010 ballot in the state of Arizona as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have allowed the people of the state to have the right to enact all laws necessary for the enforcement of this measure. 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 petition

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

A Constitutional Amendment to Article II, Section 32 of the Arizona Constitution relating to Constitutional Provisions are mandatory, by adding a new subsection 32.1 to Section 32 to provide mandatory enforcement by the people.[2]

Constitutional changes

If enacted by Arizona voters, the measure would have amended the Arizona Constitution by adding Subsection 32.1 to Article II to read:

"Notwithstanding, any provision in this constitution to the contrary, this mandatory provision of this constitution of the State of Arizona shall be the supreme law of this state, and the people, by the initiative power, shall have the right to enact all laws necessary for the enforcement of this section."[3]

Path to the ballot

The group organizing the circulation effort must gather the required 230,046 signatures for proposed constitutional amendments by the July 1, 2010 deadline.[4]
