In the upcoming Nov. 2 election, Suffolk County voters will be asked to vote for four different ballot propositions.
Prop 1: Amending the Apportionment and Redistricting Process
The proposal will amend the portions of Article III of the New York Constitution that relate to the way district lines for congressional and state legislative offices are determined.
Prop 2: 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?
Prop 3: Eliminating Ten-Day-Advance Voter Registration Requirement
Section 5 of Article II of the New York Constitution now requires that a citizen be registered to vote at least ten days before an election. The proposed amendment would delete that requirement. If this amendment is adopted, the Legislature will be authorized to enact laws permitting a citizen to register to vote less than ten days before the election.
Prop 4: 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?
