Statewide Constitutional amendments
The nonpartisan League of Women Voters issued information on the nine amendments facing Texans.
To help Texas voters cast an informed ballot, the LWV-Texas Education Fund provides helpful, nonpartisan information on both the proposed constitutional amendments and the election process.
“To have a say on whether nine proposed amendments become part of the Texas Constitution, you need to vote,” says Linda Krefting, Chair of the League of Women Voters of Texas Education Fund. “The issues at stake on the Nov. 5 ballot are important to all Texans – property tax exemptions for military families, reverse mortgages for seniors, filling short-term city council vacancies, sanctions for judicial misconduct and funding for water.”
