What can I vote on?

By: Sabrina Jamil

On Nov. 4, voters will determine two constitutional amendments and a statewide referendum. If a majority vote ratifies these amendments, they will become a part of the constitution.

Income Tax Amendment

If it passes, the first amendment would “prohibit an increase in the maximum state income tax rate after January 1, 2015.”

Reckless Driving Amendment

The second amendment recommends fines from reckless driving be put into the brain and spinal injury trust fund.

The money will be used to provide care for those who cannot necessarily receive medical treatment. Additional research can be used for the specific injuries listed above.

Proposed Property Referendum

If approved, the proposed referendum would “allow property owned by the University System of Georgia and operated by providers of student housing and other facilities to remain exempt from taxation.”
