Early voting is underway for the November election. State constitutional amendments and local propositions are on the ballot, depending on where you live.
Early voting runs until Friday, November 3, and Election Day is Tuesday, November 7.
Voters are weighing in on 14 amendments to the Texas constitution. KVUE Political Director Ashley Goudeau will spend the two weeks leading up to Election Day looking at all of the propositions to help you cast your ballot.
Here's what you'll see on the ballot: "The constitutional amendment protecting the right to engage in farming, ranching, timber production, horticulture, and wildlife management."
The author of this prop is State Rep. DeWayne Burns, a Republican from Cleburne. He says as the Texas population continues to grow, the state needs to make sure farmers and ranchers can provide food without burdensome regulations from cities and counties.
This prop would create a constitutional right for Texans to farm and ranch, using "generally accepted" practices.
Some groups argue Prop 1 limits the ability of local governments to hold farmers and ranchers accountable and pass ordinances intended to protect public health interests, though there is a list of regulations city and county leaders can still pass ordinances on.
Your options on the ballot are to vote for making farming and ranching a constitutional right or against it.
Here's what you'll see on the ballot: “The constitutional amendment authorizing a local option exemption from ad valorem taxation by a county or municipality of all or part of the appraised value of real property used to operate a child-care facility.”
