Eleven constitutional amendments¾five passed by lawmakers in the 2021 regular legislative session and six passed in the regular legislative session earlier this year ¾ are on the ballot this election cycle. Each proposal had to receive a two-thirds favorable vote in the House and Senate to reach the ballot. Now, each amendment needs a majority vote at the polls to get enacted.
PAR’s Guide to the 2022 Constitutional Amendments reviews each proposal for the November and December ballots in the order they will appear before voters. The guide does not make recommendations about how to vote, but offers analysis and provides arguments of supporters and opponents of each proposal for voters to make their own decisions.
