The article reports that Arizona Secretary of State Jan Brewer has certified the first citizen's initiative for the November 2006 ballot, which is an unusual proposal to encourage voting by randomly awarding $1 million to a voter. Mark Osterloh, who launched the initiative, had 149,448 signatures certified which is above the 122,612 requirement. The prize would be coming from unclaimed lottery money, and voters would get two chances to win if they vote in the primary and general elections.
