Those who have an agenda to suppress and subvert our rights are circulating petitions that would bypass our legislative process. Voters Not Politicians, League of Women Voters and the ACLU have banded together to circulate Promote the Vote petition that would amend the state constitution preventing all future legislation and petitions from hindering our right to vote.
