Wording Challenged on NY Ballots

08.08.14 | Sarah Harnisch

Along with a full slate of candidates for state offices, New York voters in November will be asked to weigh in on 3 ballot proposals: two that would change the state constitution and a third that would allow the state to borrow money for schools. Some have questioned whether the 2-billion dollar school technology bond act is written to win voter approval. It asks if voters want to approve the referendum to "equalize opportunities for children to learn." Last year, voters were asked if they wanted to approve casinos to "improve job growth." Ballot challenges to the wording have to be submitted by August 15th.
