Understanding Arizona’s Ballot Propositions
In addition to voting for candidates at the state, local and school board level, Arizona voters also are being asked to decide five propositions to change Arizona law. Four of them would amend the Arizona Constitution; two of them were referred to the ballot by the State Legislature; two were initiatives through voter petitions, and one was the result of a voter signature-gathering process to repeal a measure by the State Legislature and approved by the Governor. From energy, to taxes, to school financing, the outcome of these votes will impact the lives of Arizonans. Learn more about them here.
What else is on the ballot?
The November ballot will also feature many local elections for community college district governing boards, local school bond and finance issues, judges, city council members, and numerous local spending and governing policy issues. Visit the Arizona Clean Elections site for a list of all of the items on your ballot.
Federal funding for Arts & Culture
Arts and culture in Arizona benefits from three investments by three federal agencies devoted to promoting the availability and accessibility of arts, culture and humanities.
Support from these agencies contributes in excess of $5 million a year to Arizona arts organizations, museums and other culture institutions and libraries. Learn more about their work here.

It is governed by a 15-member Commission appointed by the Governor, and is funded by various state-funding streams and matching grants from the National Endowment for the Arts.
