Deadline for statewide initiatives today

July 7, 2014

Today is the deadline to file statewide initiative measures with the Arkansas Secretary of State's Office in order to place an issue on the November 2014 General Election Ballot.

Medical marijuana, minimum wage increases, and making Arkansas a wet state are all issues that voters may see on the ballot in November.

Two potential statute initiatives may appear on the ballot as well as three potential constitutional amendments. These initiatives will be included only if petitions received the required number of voter signatures and all the paperwork is filed on time.
