Know the Facts! Know What’s at Stake in the 2020 Election!
When you think about voting in the General Election, you immediately think of the candidates running for office. But Public Questions also offer you a way to make a huge – and more direct – impact on our democracy.
Public Question 1: Should the state Constitution be amended to legalize a controlled form of marijuana called “cannabis,” for use only by people at least 21 years old? If approved, the sale would be regulated and taxed by the state.
Public Question 2: Should the state Constitution be amended to give a $250 property tax deduction to peacetime military veterans, and should some disabled peacetime veterans be exempt from property taxes? The surviving spouse would continue to receive the deduction or exemption after the veteran’s death. Currently, only wartime veterans receive these benefits.
Public Question 3: Should the state Constitution be amended to allow a later date for legislative redistricting if the federal census data is delayed? Under this plan, the every-10-years redistricting would apply to elections held in years ending in 3 instead of 1, e.g. 2023 not 2021.
