An Arizona official says President Barack Obama's listing on the state's election ballot is in question until Hawaii officials say they have a birth certificate for Obama.

Secretary of State Ken Bennett says he asked Hawaii weeks ago for confirmation under a Hawaii law allowing other states to make such inquiries.

Bennett's inquiry follows a new flurry of questioning whether Obama is a natural-born U.S. citizen.

Hawaii officials have publicly stated they have Obama's birth certificate. The White House released a copy last year.

Bennett told Phoenix radio station KFYI that he may remove Obama's name from Arizona's ballot without confirmation from Hawaii. He says he also could ask all candidates to submit documentation.

A Hawaii Department of Health spokeswoman says she doesn't know the status of Bennett's request.
