An Initiative to Re-Write the California Constitution (10-0001) did not qualify for the November 2, 2010 ballot in California as an initiated constitutional amendment.

William M. Doyle filed a letter with the California Attorney General's office on December 31, 2009 requesting a ballot title. The ballot title and summary were provided on March 3, 2010, with a petition circulation deadline of August 2, 2010.
