Members of the League of Women Voters have distributed voters guides for the Nov. 7 election on seven proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution and the $100 million Amarillo Independent School District bond proposal, according to a news release.
The nonpartisan guides are free and available to the public, said Alan Abraham, LWV distribution chairman. The guide, published jointly by the LWV of Texas Education Fund and the Amarillo LWV, contains the ballot language on each proposed Constitutional amendment, an explanation of what the amendment would do, and arguments for and against its passage.
It also contains the ballot language for the AISD bond issue, a local-option liquor issue for Randall County voters in Justice of the Peace Precinct 1 and a sales tax increase to create an assistance district in the rural part of Potter County, as well as a brief explanation of the AISD bond. A listing of early-voting locations, dates and times and Election Day vote centers in both Potter and Randall counties are also included.
