An Election Day as a Holiday ballot initiative (11-0001) was approved for circulation in California with a circulation deadline of September 1, 2011.

Its sponsors did not submit any signatures to election officials by the deadline. To earn a spot on the state's 2012 ballot, sponsors of the initiative would have had to collect 504,760 signatures.[1]

A letter requesting a title and summary for the proposed initiative was signed by Roy Benson, and was received by the Attorney General of California's office on February 9, 2011. The initiative failed to qualify for the ballot on September 16, 2011.[1]
