Statewide Ballot Measures

Propositions are able to be sent to the ballot by both the state legislature and the citizens themselves. To gain official ballot status a certain amount of petition signatures must be gathered and submitted to the Secretary of State's Office.

The Secretary of State's Office creates a "Publicity Pamphlet". This pamphlet contains the official title and text of statewide propositions that will be on the ballot, it also contains arguments submitted in favor and against each measure.
