Sample ballot amendments explained

Amendments

An NPJ reader asked for a more in depth explanation of the constitutional amendments that will be on the ballot during the Nov. 6 election. The Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana (PAR) is an independent voice, offering solutions to critical public issues in Louisiana through accurate, objective research and focusing public attention on those solutions. It publishes a guide to the constitutional amendments for each election (SEE DOCUMENT BELOW).

Early voting for all interested voters will be conducted in the Registrar of Voters Office Tuesday, Oct. 23 – Saturday, Oct. 27 and Monday, Oct. 29 – Tuesday, Oct. 30 from 8:30 am – 6 pm.

The last day to register to vote and/or make changes is Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 4:30 pm (in person and by mail-date passed) and Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 11:59 pm (online voter registration-TODAY).

  1. Thank you for this article, including for the reminder of today’s deadline to register to vote in the November 6 election. Another nonpartisan analysis of the Constitutional Amendments is available on the League of Women Voters of Louisiana’s website: lwvofla.org..Also available at that site is a guide to candidates for statewide/multi-parish offices, including the Louisiana Secretary of State and U.S. Representative District 4.
