Wednesday is the deadline to pitch Arizona ballot initiatives

The deadline to make a written pitch on election issues and send it to Arizona voters ahead of the midterms is coming up Wednesday at 11:59 p.m. 

State law allows residents to pay to put a 300-word argument into a pamphlet that will be mailed to the homes of nearly all registered voters in Arizona before the November midterm election.

The fee is $75.

Those arguments have to be based on one of the potential 11 measures that will be on the ballot. The actual number of issues that make the ballot could be different due to court challenges or insufficient signature counts. 

All submissions are sent online through a website run by the Secretary of State's Office.  Physical copies will not be accepted.
