SALT LAKE CITY — The ballot initiatives for medical marijuana, Medicaid expansion and independent redistricting are getting new names.
Make that new numbers.
The Lt. Governor’s Office released a list of the citizen referendum initiatives and the numbers they will be known as on the November ballot.
- The Utah Medical Cannabis Act will be known as Proposition 2
- The Utah Decides Healthcare Act will be Proposition 3
- The Utah Independent Redistricting Commission and Standards Act will appear on the ballot as Proposition 4
On the ballot, initiatives get a number assigned to them. Proposed constitutional amendments will appear on the ballot with a letter (i.e., “Amendment Q”).
The shorthand references are what you will see going forward in advertisements and arguments for or against a particular initiative or amendment.
