Don't forget to submit your ballot arguments for initiatives by Friday

They cannot be more than 300 words and must be notarized. The Republic has a summary of the nine initiatives that will likely be on the ballot here. The official summaries can be found on the Secretary of State's website here. They include the AZ Civil Rights Initiative, the Stop Legal Hiring Act (it would weaken the existing employer sanctions law), the Freedom of Choice Healthcare Act, which would allow consumers more choice in healthcare, a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, Majority Rules, which would limit voters' ability to pass propositions that would increase spending unless a majority agrees, and a governor-backed new transportation tax that will go to light rail, not just roads.
