With early voting ending this week and election day Nov. 2, I thought I would try to simplify the eight proposed Constitutional Amendments. First, let me say that all the Texas ballots contain these amendments, some also contain city or school board elections and some contain bond elections. In my case, my ballot is amendment propositions and nothing else. If you would like to see exactly what is on your ballot, visit www.co.guadalupe.tx.us/elections/index.php , click on sample ballot, enter your name and birthday, and your sample ballot will be displayed.
I’ll tell you each proposition number, any past history, what it says simplified, and give the pros and cons per the Texas Public Policy Foundation, a non-partisan non-profit organization I often rely on for information.
