If Brewer decides to veto the bill, Republican lawmakers may try to cancel the vote. The bill would become law if two-thirds of legislators supported the annulment.

The bill would require presidential and vice presidential candidates to provide the Secretary of State of Arizona with documents that prove they are citizens by birth.

Documents can be a birth certificate or length allowed two or more documents, including an early baptismal certificate, certificate of circumcision, hospital birth record, postpartum medical record signed by the person who delivered the child or early census records.

If a candidate has not submitted the required documents or the Secretary of State considers that insufficient, the candidate would not be included on the ballot in Arizona.

Supporters of the bill said it had nothing to do with Obama, but it is a way to ensure Arizona voters that the presidential candidates to meet federal requirements for the job.
