The right to vote a secret ballot is a fundamental freedom guaranteed all Americans. Unfortunately, certain special interests are spending millions of dollars in an effort to strip Americans of this right.
Proposition 113 simply guarantees that all Arizonans will be able to vote a secret ballot in any union election. This measure represents the foundation of American democracy and is a direct reaction to attempts at the federal level to pass so-called ‘card-check’ legislation that would undermine that fundamental freedom.
A secret ballot ensures that Arizonans can safely and freely vote for the representative of their choosing without intimidation. It is imperative that we protect this basic freedom and the voice of the individual citizen. With this constitutional amendment in place, voters will not fear retaliation for casting their vote one way or another, thereby encouraging more Arizonans to exercise this basic freedom.
It is for these reasons that we urge you to VOTE YES on Proposition 113.
The Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry is committed to advancing Arizona's competitive position in the global economy by advocating free-market policies that stimulate economic growth and prosperity for all Arizonans.
