3 statewide ballot measures being decided

vVoters are deciding a host of ballot measures across Arizona on Election Day, including three statewide propositions.

The three statewide measures focus on lawmaker salaries, federal overreach and medication for terminally ill patients. Numerous proposals are on the ballot on the local level, including questions about banning traffic cameras in Sierra Vista and overhauling the municipal pension fund in Phoenix.

The medication proposal is commonly referred to as the “right to try” measure. It would allow Arizonans with terminal illnesses to get unapproved drugs as a last resort. Similar proposals have passed in four other states. Another proposal would give Arizona lawmakers their first pay raise since 1998. And a third would allow Arizona lawmakers and voters to reject any federal action they deem unconstitutional.
