November 5 Elections - The Texas Constitutional Amendment Election

During this year's legislative session, lawmakers passed several bills that require amendments to the Texas Constitution. A majority of Texas voters must vote to support any change to the state constitution in a statewide referendum. Several proposed constitutional amendments, called joint resolutions, are introduced each legislative session. To pass, a joint resolution must be approved by two-thirds of each chamber, which equates to 100 members in the Texas House and 21 members of the Texas Senate. Next, the proposal must then be approved by voters, usually during the uniform election in November of that year.
Here is a link to the 10 propositions you will see on the ballot on Tuesday, November 5.
