While nearly everyone is familiar with the presidential candidates topping this year’s ballot, and many are also aware of the races for U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, voters may not aware of the two referendums that will be placed before voters in November.
Amendment 1 would replace the current method of drawing up election districts, taking the process out of the hands of the General Assembly and handing over that responsibility to a bipartisan commission.
Amendment 2 would make a car or pickup truck owned by a veteran with 100 percent disability free from state and local taxation.
Voting starts Sept. 18
