Did You Know that there are Six Ballot Proposals in November?
By Mary Kirsch
League of Women Voters of New Castle Board Member
Election Day approaches! We will make our way to the polls in spite of being busy and/or tired, sometimes in spite of bad weather. We are motivated knowing that voting is an important responsibility and should be taken seriously.
Well, brace yourselves! This November there are six statewide ballot questions. The ballot proposals are:
1. Casino gambling
2. Civil Service Credit for Veterans with Disabilities Certified Post-Appointment
3. Exclusion of Indebtedness Contracted for Sewage Facilities
4. Settling Disputed Title in the Forest Preserve
5. In Relation to a Land Exchange in the State Forest Preserve with NYCO Minerals, Inc.
6. Increasing Age until which Certain State Judges Can Serve
The NYS League of Women Voters has compiled a brief summary of each proposal and presented the pros and cons (if any) of a yes vote for each proposal. Click HERE to see the summary. Also, a pamphlet titled “2013 Voters Guide Part II” is being distributed by the LWV of New Castle. Look for it at our Candidates’ Night on October 24th at 7:00 p.m. at the Chappaqua Library Theater. You can also find it online at www.lwvny.org and as part of www.Vote411.org.
