Roy Miller, Applicant & Chairman
The framers of our Arizona Constitution provided that Arizona citizens should have the right to vote in elections by secret ballot. This initiative would protect that right against interference by federal, state or local governments. It places added guarantees into the Arizona Constitution that acknowledge that the right to vote by secret ballot is fundamental in elections traditionally recognized and protected by state or federal law, including elections for public office, ballot measures, and designations or authorizations of employee representation.

Shawn Dow, Applicant & Chairman
This initiative measure preserves the balance between the rights of individuals and the need for effective law enforcement. This initiative prohibits the issuance or filing of traffic related citations for alleged violations that are detected through the use of photo radar. This initiative keeps the enforcement of our laws in the hands of trained police officers who are authorized by the people, protects Arizona citizens from abuses that accompany the outsourcing of law enforcement to private, for-profit corporations and ensures that the purpose of law enforcement remains to serve and protect and not to generate revenue for governments.

The Arizona Medical Marijuana Act protects terminally or seriously ill patients from state prosecution for using limited amounts of marijuana on their doctor's recommendation. Qualifying patients who register with the Arizona Department of Health Services will obtain marijuana from nonprofit medical marijuana dispensaries regulated by ADHS. Private cultivation will be allowed by ADHS only when no dispensary is available. The Act is self-funding and establishes safeguards: registration cards; fingerprinting of caregivers and dispensary personnel to exclude drug and violent felons; strict security, recordkeeping and oversight requirements; inspection of dispensaries; restrictions on number and location of dispensaries; and providing penalties.

John McCain has stood by and provoked racial bigotry and hate along with another individual named Sarah Palin. He has also defacto approved "torture" by the United States of America. Finally, John McCain neglects his state of Arizona by not encouraging its fair share of public dollars and voting against the New GI Bill for soldiers. Please restore the U.S. Constitution to AZ. Recall John McCain.

Recall Gabrielle Giffords
4600 North Sunset Hills Lane
Tucson, AZ 85745

Thomas D. Young, Applicant
Representative Gabrielle Giffords has failed to uphold the oath of office of the United States House of Representatives. I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will suport and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. She has voted for unconstitutional bills and expenditures that undermine the safety and security of the United States of America. Representative Giffords' voting records show clear contradiction to Article 8 of the Constitution. The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duites, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States. Repersentative Giffords voted in favor on House Bill 2454 which will impose non-uniform taxes on engery users that have no alternate energy supply. Furthermore Gabrielle Giffords swore an oath to resign from the office she now holds if ever defeated in a recall election.
