Here are the latest results for the state’s 10 ballot proposals

PHOENIX — Arizonans have been asked to consider 10 ballot measures in Tuesday’s general election.

The initiatives covered a wide range of topics, including the voting process itself, taxation, the creation of a new statewide office, and debt collection.

Here’s a breakdown of Arizona’s ballot measures and how the state passed them Monday night:

Proposal 128

Proposition 128 would allow the Legislature to make changes or divert funds from laws passed by voters through ballot initiatives if Arizona or the United States Supreme Court finds that they contain illegal or unconstitutional language.

Proponents believe the current methods for handling such situations are not sufficient, while opponents believe the proposal gives lawmakers too much power to override the will of voters.

Result: 63.64% NO – REJECTED

Proposal 129

Proponents say it would prevent voters from being misled and reveal the true value of an initiative, while opponents argue it would limit citizens’ ability to propose legislation.

Proposition 129 would limit a ballot measure to one topic and require that topic to be expressed in the title of the initiative.

Result: 55.19% – PASS

Proposal 130

Proposition 130 asks voters to amend the Arizona Constitution to restore property tax exemptions for disabled veterans.

Proponents say it would correct constitutional language to provide those who served with the tax benefits they are owed. No arguments against the measure have been submitted to the Arizona Secretary of State’s office.

Result: 63.77% YES – PASS

Proposal 131

Prop 131 would change the state constitution by creating the office of lieutenant governor. Currently, if the Governor cannot perform the duties of the office temporarily or permanently, the Secretary of State assumes the position.

Proponents of the measure believe there has been too much turnover in the governor’s office and not enough continuity, while opponents believe the position would be a waste of money and could lead to corruption.

Result: 55.21% – PASS

Proposition 132

Proposition 132 asks voters whether future initiatives or referendums that enact a tax should require a supermajority of at least 60% to pass instead of the current 50% threshold.

Proponents say it would reduce the impact of special interest groups, while opponents say it is an attempt by lawmakers to take power away from voters.

Result: 51% YES

Proposal 209

Proposition 209 would reduce interest rates on medical debt and make more personal assets exempt from debt collection.

Proponents tout it as a way to give people in debt a bit more breathing space. Opponents believe it will actually hurt those it aims to help by making them less likely to be approved for loans.

Result: 72.00% YES – PAST

Proposition 211

Proposition 211 would require additional disclosures and reporting for campaign contributions known as “dark money.”

Proponents argue that citizens should know who is trying to persuade their vote, while opponents say the measure is an attempt to limit free speech.

Result: 72.37% YES – PAST

Proposition 308

Proposition 308 would allow Arizona high school graduates to receive in-state tuition and financial aid at public universities and community colleges, regardless of their immigration status.

Proponents say it would make college more accessible for tens of thousands of undocumented students who grew up in Arizona. Opponents argue that in-state tuition and state financial aid are benefits that should only be offered to students with legal status.

Result: 51.26% – PASS

Proposal 309

Proposition 309 would require voters to include their date of birth and government-issued ID number with advance ballots and make photo ID a requirement for in-person voting.

Proponents say it would increase election integrity and voter confidence, while opponents believe the extra steps are unnecessary and cumbersome and could lead to the exposure of personal information.

Result: 51% NO

Proposition 310

Proposition 310 would create a 0.1% statewide sales tax for the next 20 years to fund fire districts across the state. A large majority of the districts are in rural areas.

Proponents say the tax would be a small price to pay for better fire departments, while opponents say it would be an unnecessary burden on taxpayers across the state.

Result: 53% NO
