SCR1036 is a resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Arizona, specifically to Article XIII, by adding a new section that pertains to municipal elections. The purpose of this amendment is to constitutionally mandate that in cities or towns with a population of 500,000 or more, where council members are elected based on geographic divisions such as districts, wards, or precincts, only voters who are qualified electors of those specific geographic areas are eligible to vote for their respective council member candidates in any type of municipal election, including primary, general, runoff, or other elections.

The resolution requires the Secretary of State to submit this proposition to the voters at the next general election. If the amendment is approved by the voters and subsequently proclaimed by the Governor, it will become effective. The fact sheet prepared by Senate Research on February 10, 2024, indicates that there is no anticipated fiscal impact to the state General Fund from this legislation. The resolution is assigned to the committee for further consideration.
