In a recent email, Alabama Policy Institute released a guide to the Constitutional Amendments that will be on the ballot for Alabama. According to its website, “API is a non-profit, non-partisan educational and research organization committed to free markets, limited government, and strong families. API reaches its goal of sound public policy through research, advocacy, and public education efforts.”
In the guide, each of the proposed amendments is described and explained so that voters can make an informed decision.
Here is the email below:
In less than three weeks, Alabamians will go to the polls and vote in one of the most contentious presidential elections in recent history.
What is lesser known is that Alabamians will also be voting on six statewide amendments to the Alabama Constitution.
These amendments address the right to vote, the state’s judiciary system, “stand your ground” provisions in some counties, and more.
The purpose of this Guide is to explain these six amendments in plain language so that voters may be well informed when they go to the polls on November 3rd, or when they mail in their absentee ballot.
We recommend, in addition to reading this guide, printing off a sample ballot and filling out your selections beforehand and bringing it with you to the polls.
