There are 4 propositions on this year's ballot. Please familiarize yourself with them so you'll be prepared when you vote. The republicans in New York would love it if you're not familiar with them and neglected to vote on them on November 2.
Ballot Proposal 1:
FORM OF SUBMISSION OF PROPOSAL NUMBER ONE, AN AMENDMENT
Amending the Apportionment and Redistricting Process
This proposed constitutional amendment would freeze the number of state senators at 63, amend the process for the counting of the states population, delete certain provisions that violate the United States Constitution, repeal and amend certain requirements for the appointment of the co-executive directors of the redistricting commission and amend the manner of drawing district lines for congressional and state legislative offices. Shall the proposed amendment be approved?
In my opinion, and this is my opinion only, I would vote YES! Conservatives want you to vote 'no', so they can control their gerrymandering of election districts. Again, vote YES on proposition one.
Ballot Proposal 2:
FORM OF SUBMISSION OF PROPOSAL NUMBER TWO, AN AMENDMENT
Right to Clean Air, Clean Water, and a Healthful Environment
The proposed amendment to Article I of the New York Constitution would establish the right of each person to clean air and water and a healthful environment. Shall the proposed amendment be approved?
This one is pretty self-explanatory. VOTE YES! We all want and deserve clean and and water, right? VOTE YES on proposition two.
Ballot Proposal 3:
FORM OF SUBMISSION OF PROPOSAL NUMBER THREE, AN AMENDMENT
Eliminating Ten-Day-Advance Voter Registration Requirement
The proposed amendment would delete the current requirement in Article II, § 5 that a citizen be registered to vote at least ten days before an election and would allow the Legislature to enact laws permitting a citizen to register to vote less than ten days before the election. Shall the proposed amendment be approved?
VOTE YES on proposition three. Republicans don't want you to be able to register to vote at all, but they certainly don't want you to register to vote within 10 days of any election. The more citizens exercising their right to vote, the better, whenever they happen to register. VOTE YES on proposition three.
Ballot Proposal 4:
FORM OF SUBMISSION OF PROPOSAL NUMBER FOUR, AN AMENDMENT
Authorizing No-Excuse Absentee Ballot Voting
The proposed amendment would delete from the current provision on absentee ballots the requirement that an absentee voter must be unable to appear at the polls by reason of absence from the county or illness or physical disability. Shall the proposed amendment be approved? VOTE YES on proposition four. You should be able to cast your ballot by absentee ballot whenever you want, especially during a pandemic. This pisses republicans off. COVID is a hoax, right? They don't want you to vote absentee for any other reason, and it should be your right to vote absentee for any reason!
In conclusion, New York voters, we should vote YES on all four ballot propositions. If for no other reason than to piss the state's republicans off. Thank you.
