LA constitutional amendments on ballot November

Friday, October 5, 2012 - 7:49pm

People in Louisiana won't just be voting for president in November. There are also nine proposed amendents to the state's constitution.

All of the amendents were passed during the last legislative session, but to become law they require a majority vote from citizens. These amendments deal with subjects ranging from the Medicaid trust fund for the elderly to individual gun rights, and even a new property tax exemption.

This year, as always, the Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana, or PAR, has released a guide to all the amendements you'll see on the ballot.

A spokesperson for PAR said, "If you go into the voting booth and see the way these things are worded, some of them [are] clearer than others. You'll do yourself and the people waiting in line behind you a great favor if you prepare ahead of time."

PAR is a non-profit, non-partisan organization. You can find out more at www.parlouisiana.org.
