  • VOTE NO

    Vote NO to protect the will of the people

  • Under Prop 128, a few politicians would have the power to be able to overturn what the majority of Arizonans voted for.

    No matter our color, background, or origin, we all want the freedom to make decisions about the policies that impact our lives. Ballot initiatives are the people's power to exercise that freedom. This constitutional amendment would allow the legislature to rewrite the ballot propositions already approved by the people if a judge invalidates and portion of the proposed language.

    For 110 years, Arizonans from all walks of life have used ballot initiatives to propose and enact laws that help our communities. Our legislators have a moral and constitutional responsibility to follow the will of the people as enacted through the ballot initiative process. But some politicians and wealthy corporations don’t like the decisions we’ve made, so they are trying to rewrite the rules to get their way – no matter what the majority wants.

    Proposition 128 is yet another attempt by these politicians to block, limit or reverse the will of the people. Proposition 128 would give politicians the authority to undo or entirely rewrite a ballot initiative that was already approved by voters, if the Arizona Supreme Court interprets any small part of the initiative as unconstitutional.

    In 1998, voters approved the Voter Protection Act, which prohibits the Arizona State Legislature from amending or repealing voter-approved ballot initiatives and referendums. But under Proposition 128, a few legislators would be able to overturn what the majority decides.

    Arizonans won’t be tricked into giving politicians more power. It’s up to us to defend the will of the people against politicians who want to rewrite the rules to get their way. We must come together to protect our right to make decisions through the ballot by voting NO on Proposition 128.

  • VOTE NO

    Vote NO to protect the will of the people

  • This constitutional amendment would limit citizen-initiated propositions to a single subject, as defined by a judge, even if the people determine that some issues need a comprehensive plan.

    We all want the freedom to make decision that affect our lives. Ballot initiatives let us exercise that freedom. Without constantly having to wait on politicians to decide whether or not to properly serve us. But some politicians don't like the decisions we've made so they want to rewrite the rules so they can get what they want, instead of what the people want.

    Proposition 129 is just another way to undermine the will of the people. It would impose a new requirement on ballot initiatives that would allow the will of hundreds of thousands of Arizonans to be overridden by a single judge.

    This measure would open the door to unnecessary and expensive lawsuits for measures that have qualified for the ballot, preventing voters from being able to vote and make decisions on these issues.

    Arizonans voted to ban smoking indoors but under this constitutional amendment, more than a dozen separate initiatives would have been needed because there are separate laws governing hospitals, universities, restaurants, bars, stores, etc. This is a completely unnecessary amendment to our constitution designed to make it harder for Arizonans to advocate for ourselves.

    Arizonans won’t be fooled into giving politicians more power. It’s up to us to defend the will of the people against politicians who want to rewrite the rules to get their way.

  • VOTE NO

    Vote NO to protect the will of the people

  • This constitutional amendment takes away our right to decide what happens in Arizona, requiring at least 60%, rather than a simple majority of votes to approve a ballot proposition that would enact a tax. Under Proposition 132, this amendment would end majority rule so 41% of voters decide what's best for everyone else.

    Since the beginning of statehood in 1912, voters in Arizona from all sides of the political spectrum have used ballot initiatives to propose and enact laws to voice the public will and improve our communities. But now, some politicians are trying to rewrite the rules because they don’t want voters to use our power at the ballot. Arizona voters must stand up to these politicians and defend our freedom to make decisions through ballot initiatives.

    Because Arizona is a “revenue neutral” state, all initiatives include a fee or tax to cover costs – administrative, enforcement, program development, even printing or training. Under Proposition 132, it would only take 41% of voters to block popular policies supported by the majority of Arizonans, on topics ranging everywhere from healthcare to education.

    Arizona voters must defend our right to determine our future by standing together to stop these politicians by voting NO on Proposition 132.

    Vote YES to protect our families and our future

  • Proposition 209 protects Arizonans suffering from emergency medical debt by curbing predatory debt collection practices.

    No Arizona family should lose their home or car due to medical emergencies or accidents, or be trapped into unending debt by unfair interest rates on medical care.

    In Arizona, interest rates of medical debt can increase by as much as 10% per year, every year. Families can lose their homes, cars, or have their wages garnished by predatory debt collectors – even if they’ve done everything right.

    Proposition 209, the Predatory Debt Collection Protection Act fixes these problems by limiting the interest rate on medical debt to no more than 3%, protecting more assets from being sold to pay off debt collectors, and ensuring hard-working Arizonans keep more of their bank accounts and wages.

    In July of 2022, the Predatory Debt Collection Protection Act submitted a record breaking amount of signatures in order to qualify for the ballot.

    Arizonans deserve to be able to live comfortably, without the fear of an accident or illness bulldozing our life accomplishments. Vote YES to protect Arizona families and our future!

  • VOTE YES

    Vote Yes For Arizona Students!

  • Proposition 308 would allow Arizona Dreamers to pay the same college tuition rate as their fellow Arizona high school graduates.

    Dreamers are Arizona students who came to the U.S. as children. Arizona Dreamers studied hard, listened to their teachers and followed the rules, yet were not eligible for in-state tuition or public scholarships. Dreamers have grown up with their peers playing sports, going to our schools, and have called Arizona their home. Dreamers are Arizona kids.

    Prop. 308 gives Arizona voters the opportunity to allow all students, including Arizona Dreamers, to receive in-state college tuition when a student (a) attended a school in Arizona for a minimum of two years and (b) graduated from a public school, private school, or homeschool in Arizona. Currently, Arizona Dreamers have to pay more than their peers at local colleges and public universities.

    Vote yes on Proposition 308 to transform the lives of thousands of Dreamers by treating them like every other Arizona student.
