Arkansas Initiative Requirements Amendment (2012)
|Not on Ballot|
| This measure did not or |
will not appear on a ballot
The Arkansas Initiative Requirements Amendment did not make the November 6, 2012 ballot in the state of Arkansas as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have reduced the percentage of voter signatures needed to place ballot initiatives on the ballot. The measure was filed by Frederick Scott, spokesman for the Little Red Hen Committee.
Path to the ballot
In order for supporters to place the measure on the ballot, 78,133 valid signatures must have been collected from state residents and submitted by the July 6, 2012 petition drive deadline.
On February 15, 2012, Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel rejected the ballot title of the initiative, citing ambiguity. The measure could have been re-filed after a revision of the wording. This was the second time the initiative had been rejected by McDaniel.
