Get The Lowdown On Ballot Amendments

photo credit: ralaenin


November's ballot will include 5 statewide amendments.  As usual, the language summarizing those amendments can be confusing.  We believe an informed voter is a better voter, so we want you to know where to find out more.

Statements from the Fair Ballot Commission about each amendment are available on the State Legislature's home page.  Each statement includes:
  • the text of the amendment
  • the amendment's sponsors and co-sponsors
  • the text of any related implementing legislation
  • the amendment's placement on the ballot
  • a plain-language summary of the amendment describing the effect if the amendment passes, including its cost and source of funding, and the effect if it is defeated

Here are links directly to the statement for each amendment:

Please share this information with your friends and encourage them to turn out to the polls on the 4th.

CORRECTION: Voter Registration Closes October 20th, not 24th



 The Voter Registration Deadline for the November General Election is Monday, October 20th.

The deadline for voter registration in Alabama was stated incorrectly in Monday's Roundup, and was based on outdated information posted at Montgomery County's website. The correct date is posted at the Alabama Secretary of State's website.

We apologize for the error.

Turnout will be critical in this election. EVERY VOTE MATTERS. Please urge any unregistered voters to register as soon as possible -- and be sure they know the correct deadline!
